Hmmm.  S0, S2 and S3 are all on IRQ21 and using high port numbers, but
S1 is in the normal spot for a COM2 or second serial port (port 0x2f8,
IRQ3).  Do you possibly have another device sharing IRQ3 or possibly
port 0x2f8?  Check /proc/ioports and any files under /proc/irq/3.  Also
check /var/log/messages and dmesg for any possible information.
