None Find out what is invoking setserial?

This sounds to me like a bug in your distribution (SuSE?).

Maybe you should determine what in the startup scripts is invoking
setserial.  The PCMCIA serial script may invoke setserial, however, it
does this after the card is configured and the serial port is already
assigned.  So some other startup script is (apparently) disabling your
ttyS0 device.

I would start with something like "grep setserial /etc/rc.d/init.d/*"
and see what that turns up.
