I think it has something to do with it not loading the module. Maybe you shoudl try downlaoding the source so that you can make sure it does everything properly.
THis is the contents of my /etc/modules.conf . Make sure yours ahs the hcf entry in it.

probeall scsi_hostadapter usb-storage
probeall usb-interface usb-ohci
above snd-cmipci snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-slot-0 cmpci
alias /dev/ttySHCF[0-9]* hcfpciserial

alias /dev/modem hcfpciserial
