LPC122x UART0 Modem Interrupt

my LPC122x gives me an interrupt on UART0 with IIR - INTID (bit 3:1) containing the value 0x0. The UM10441 states this is a modem interrupt. But the UM gives no further info on this interrupt and the next page even states the value "0000" is reserved. So in the end I am confused what caused the interrupt and how to stop it (not knowing why is never good and it's also a minor performance issue).

MCR and MSR register are 0x00 so Modem is not used at all...




P.S. just found a "Modem status interrupt generation" Table in the doc naming an "enable modem status interrupt" flag "ER[3]" but no link or info as there seems to be no ER register around. Maybe IER but that is used as IER[7] just in the next coulum so I doubt it. IER[3] is marked as reserved so it might at least match as it is not anything else...but even if: the value if IER is 0x05 for me so not set -> should be no problem
