I did need to make a minor change to ipppd/sys-linux.c. The function
decode_version() did not return a valid kernel version when the
EXTRAVERSION is non-empty and does not
match "-pre*". It did not accept 2.2.13ac1 or 2.2.14pre1.
The latest version will accept "pre*" (but they still have a thing
against Alan or Andrea).
I would recommend to anyone who uses experimental kernels, edit
isdn4k-utils/ipppd/sys-linux.c. Find the function decode_version
and wrap the last if statement (commented /* ignore any "-preX" part */)
with a #if 0 .. #endif.
(suggestion to the ISDN team: Either drop that EXTRAVERSION test completely
or make it output a warning if it does not like the kernel version).
