a quick look on the web for the PCI ID 1002:4378 doesn't reveal any 
information on the device. It is possible that this is a HD Audio bus to 
which a modem based on a Conexant chipset is connected. HD Audio is the 
successor to the AC97 bus:

Linuxant developers are taking a look at HD Audio support for the HSF 
modem driver so it is quite possible that a future release of the HSF 
driver will add support for HD Audio based Conexant modems.
