A number of people have asked a number of times for you to provide
details as to what exactly does not work given that a number of people
use the same 3com modem you claim is totally broken.

I have the following modem is a few dozen locations that works just fine
on RELENG_7 and RELENG_8 using uart.

uart2@pci0:0:14:0:      class=0x070002 card=0x00d312b9 chip=0x100812b9

    device     = 'USR5610B (0005610-02) 56K Performance Pro Modem (PCI
Internal) (USR5610B)'
    class      = simple comms
    subclass   = UART
    bar   [10] = type I/O Port, range 32, base 0xe500, size  8, enabled
