That should have given you a puc0 device, did it not?

This won't work as the puc module doesn't include sio_puc (the version
of the sio driver that attaches to puc devices). Yes, this is somewhat
lame as it means the puc module is basically useless. I'm not sure if
this has been made better since 6.0.
