Description of problem:
My muliport card is (8 port) is using ports 4 -7 then 2,3,4.
The card should be grabbing 4 - 11.
I think the 8250_NR_UARTS is defaulting to 4 and should default to
something like 36 (4 for COM1 - COM4) then ability for using 4 multiport
cards each with 8 ports.
Seems logical, but just guessing...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. booting kernel is showing 4 - 7 and 2,3,4
Actual Results: ports are 4 -7 and 2,3,4
Expected Results: ports should be 4 - 11 for 1 card. May use upto 4 (8 port) cards though.
What kind of card is it?
Sorry - the card I use the Quatech ESC100M.
I also use a generic timedia card.
Both are behaving the same way.
