Oxford Semiconductor's OXCB950 UART not recognized by serial.c

Oxford Semiconductor's OXCB950 UART not recognized by serial.c

We have 32-bit CardBus cards with OXCB950 CardBus (PCI ID 1415:950b) UART
chips on them (OXCB950 is the CardBus version of 16C950) . The module
serial_cb in the pcmcia-cs package recognizes them correctly. But, when
not using serial_cb, the function serial_pci_guess_board in serial.c
doesn't (kernel 2.4.17 tested). The problem is that the card advertises 3
i/o memory regions and 2 ports. If one replaces the line

if (num_iomem <= 1 && num_port == 1) {


if (num_port >= 1) {

in the function serial_pci_guess_board(), the card is detected and works
perfectly. Only, when inserting it, the kernel displays the message:

Redundant entry in serial pci_table.  Please send the output of
lspci -vv, this message (1415,950b,1415,0001)
and the manufacturer and name of serial board or modem board

And this is the output of lspci -vv, only the part relevant to the Oxford
