char: mxser, fix ISA board lookup

There's a bug in the mxser kernel module that still appears in the kernel.

mxser_get_ISA_conf takes a ioaddress as its first argument, by passing the
not of the ioaddr, you're effectively passing 0 which means it won't be
able to talk to an ISA card.  I have tested this, and removing the !
fixes the problem.
