Description of problem:
Support for the Comtrol Rocket Multiport Serial card is disabled by default.  The default ought to be to make support a module.  Then modprobe can make the decision to load the module at system startup time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
2.modprobe rocket

Actual Results:
Module not found

Expected Results:
Should just load the module and it should just work.

Additional info:
 From the make config process:

* Character devices
Virtual terminal (VT) [Y/?] (NEW) y
  Support for binding and unbinding console drivers (VT_HW_CONSOLE_BINDING) [Y/n/?]
Non-standard serial port support (SERIAL_NONSTANDARD) [Y/n/?]
  Computone IntelliPort Plus serial support (COMPUTONE) [N/m/y/?]
  Comtrol RocketPort support (ROCKETPORT) [N/m/y/?] m  <------- should be M not N
  Cyclades async mux support (CYCLADES) [M/n/y/?]
  Digiboard Intelligent Async Support (DIGIEPCA) [N/m/y/?]
  Hayes ESP serial port support (ESPSERIAL) [N/m/y/?]
  Specialix RIO system support (RIO) [N/m/y/?]
  Stallion multiport serial support (STALDRV) [N/y/?]

Work around is to build the kernel module - a lot of work for such a simple thing.
