Show both ports in the RSVF list and the user will assume
they can be used separately and simultaneously.  

Anyhow, after thinking about it, the driver should not even touch
the sound bit.  Let the user handle this using a CPX and assume
we are gonna use LAN, thus providing /dev/lan and /dev/ttyS4, at 
bootup. If/when the sound bit is set, switch to /dev/serial2.
