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


So, there was a massive config shuffle between -19 and -20, but this is
a complete diff of the amd64-generic kernel's configs between those
versions, and nothing obvious jumps out at me.

** Patch added: "config.19-20.diff"

  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?
