[Bug 1313981] Re: Kernel disabling serial port ttyS0 on boot


Ok this "disabled" message very likely is coming from pnp_stop_dev(),
and most probabally coming from a probe failure in pnp_device_probe().
This implies we can either not match the device to any driver, or the
probe itself failed for some reason, the lack of any error between the
two quoted lines tend to imply the former.  So.  We need to know the
device type and which driver normally binds to it.  An lspci -nnvv and
lsmod might also instructive (in addition to the things in comment #21).

  Kernel disabling serial port ttyS0 on boot

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On boot in 13.10 kern.log would state:

   Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 32 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
   00:0a: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A

  and my serial modem would work just fine.

  After upgrading to 14.04 the kernel log contains:

   Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 4 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
   serial 00:0a: disabled

  [[ Note that with the 3.13.0-24 kernel as reported in the bug below we see this:
  [    3.191190] Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 32 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
  [    3.191342] serial 00:0a: disabled

  How do I enable 00:0a?  Do I need to recompile the kernel with a different config?
