serial_cs - PCMCIA serial port driver
insmod serial_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [irq_list=i,j,...] [do_sound=n]
Serial_cs is the Card Services driver for all PCMCIA serial devices,
including modem cards. When serial_cs is bound to a serial or modem
card, it will generally attempt to allocate the first unused serial
device for use by the card. The device chosen will be recorded in the
kernel log file, and will also be reported to cardmgr(8). The major
and minor numbers and device name reported by serial_cs will match the
corresponding "dialout" device (/dev/cua#). The new device can be
accessed using this device file or the corresponding /dev/ttyS# device.
The default serial card setup script will link the dialout device to
Selects the PCMCIA debugging level. This parameter is only
available if the module is compiled with debugging enabled. A
non-zero value enables debugging.
Specifies the set of interrupts that may be allocated by this
A flag specifying if speaker output should be enabled. The
default is 1 (true). Set to 0 to disable speaker output.
buggy_uart=n If set, then the kernel serial driver skips certain
sanity checks that seem to fail for a few PCMCIA modems with odd
UART implementations. The default is 0 (false). Set to 1 to
tolerate buggy UART's. This option is only available for rela-
tively new (2.4 or later?) kernels.
This man page describes the standalone PCMCIA drivers provided by the
pcmcia-cs source, not the PCMCIA kernel driver support that is included
in the 2.4 (and later) linux kernel. While the kernel PCMCIA code has
the same functionality as the driver side of the standalone PCMCIA
package, there are some important differences. Therefore, some or all
of this documentation might not apply to the kernel drivers.
