GPS device missing in debian

   I understand that the GPS device is accessed through 
/dev/s3c2410_serial1 in debian rather than through /dev/ttySAC1 as under 
2008.8 (BTW, GPS under 2008.8 worked for me). However, I'm not getting any 
s3c2410_serial1 appearing in my /dev, and my debian is up to date, with 
kernel 2.6.24. All that dmesg says about s3c2410_serial1 is:

s3c2440-uart.1: s3c2410_serial1 at MMIO 0x50004000 (irq = 73) is a S3C2440

I couldn't find a module to load. I know other people have this working in 
debian, but I thought I followed the wiki closely. Any suggestions?
