PCMCIA Modem causes hang on boot

Hello Warner:

 I tried a good bit this weekend to get this card to work in NetBSD but it did not. The latest dmesg output is here:

I also saw this entry in the /etc/defaults/pccard.conf:

# Zoom 56K modem 
# Freezes your system entirely if you don't have the reset..
card "Zoom Telephonics, Inc." "PCMCIA 56K LT DataFax"
        config  auto "sio" ?
        reset   1000

 I wonder if that freeze condition would apply to this card also? Would the reset 1000 be the same? Recall that my Hawking PN612 tries to use sio4. I will continue with the kernel debugging and try to get a core file.

                      Kind regards,
