I appreciate your "calm" response. =)
DPA (Digi Port Authority) support (the special ioctls)
and /proc (and /sys) files were left unresolved.
Wendy had no choice but to remove them to get the driver
into the kernel sources.
IBM was okay with removing them, so I was okay with doing it as well,
as the whole point of the JSM driver is to support IBM's card directly.
However, removing those things are just unacceptable for Digi for our
I understand your position, and I respect it.
This is why for now, I cannot submit the original DGNC driver.
However, I have taken your suggestion of moving to the serial-core to
and in the future, when I am able to drop 2.4 kernel support in the
DGNC driver, I will completely go to serial-core, like the JSM driver
has already done.
