these lines are probably added by the HSF modem driver to prevent other 
modem modules to take control of the modem. If your remove these lines, 
does you modem is still working fine?

If the crash is related to the HSF modem driver, it is important to note 
that Fedora Core 5 kernels are compiled with 4K of stacks and the HSF 
modem driver is known to require more than that.

We offer a pre-compiled RPMs of Fedora Core 5 kernels with 16K stacks as 
a convenience for our users. You can obtain these kernels at:

i686: http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads-fc5-kernel-i686.php

Simply install the right kernel and reboot in this new kernel. Finally 
download and install the HSF driver package for this new kernel version. 
You can also obtain it from the HSF driver download page at:
