I was hoping someone would say that so I don't have to rebuild
a bunch if driver RPMs. I guess I will need to play around with
that Makefile to get the kernel name to stay the same. It should
be safe enough...all I did was change the serial port to a module.
Everything else is just the way Axel had it configured.
