I ran into this same problem with my Thinkpad R40.  I ended up buying a
Zonet ZFM5600.  It was relatively inexpensive and worked fine when I was
on the road over the holidays.  The probe message says:

sio4: <INTEL CORP V92  MODEM AT-MD56XX> at port 0x2f8-0x2ff irq 5 function 0 con
fig 33 on pccard0
sio4: type 16550A
sio4: unable to activate interrupt in fast mode - using normal mode

The last line is because the modem shares its irq with cbb0.
