None Hard to tell without more testing

If the modem stopped working without any change in your system
configuration (you didn't upgrade your kernel, didn't upgrade the
PCMCIA drivers, didn't add new hardware or change BIOS settings), then
my guess would be a hardware problem.  But the only way to really tell
would be to try another modem, or try this modem under Windows, or try
this modem in another laptop.

I don't recall hearing of driver problems that would cause setserial
to fail.  Is the port detected properly as a 16550A uart?  (check your
system log)
