ipack/devices/ipoctal: fix kernel bug when using pppd
Trying to setup the pppd server to use ipoctal's serial ports, it says the ports are busy the first time. If the operation is repeated, a kernel bug due to a dereference of a NULL pointer appears. Removing the one-access-only setup from the driver, removes this kernel bug.
