Thanks. With this command I see also the KERN_DEBUG printks now.

If you have instructions how to proceed I'm looking forward to help solving 
it. I guess reverting the zlib modification in the Linux main line is no 
option. What I'm wondering is that this issue hasn't been detected earlier. 
Looks as nobody is using analogue modems and nullmodem cables any more.

Sorry. I should have made an attachment.

It was just for debugging. Forget it. Now I have changed these modifications 
back, and I do not see more debug information except those below:

z_decompress0: Would have triggered an error as inflate returned -5 ()
z_decompress0: Would have triggered an error as inflate returned -5 ()
z_decompress0: Would have triggered an error as inflate returned -5 ()
..
As there are no debug logs in inflate.c I can't provide more information by 
now.
