How do you normally access them on the host, and what happens when you
try the same thing inside the UML? 
Normally I access them using minicom or chat/ppp. I can type AT commands or set up
a ppp connection.

Using minicom inside UML (without workaround) just gives me a screen saying
"Welcome to minicom etc. etc.", but no commands can be entered.

In the chat case, same thing. No response to the AT command sent can be seen
in the syslog.

I made another interesting observation on one of my test systems. On this
specific system, the only way to get things running was to start minicom outside and
inside of the UML simultaneously. As soon as both minicom sessions come up, the modem
responds from inside UML. I then exit from both sessions -  and everything's fine...
