Re: [PATCH] ACP Modem (Mwave)

FYI here's a data point.

I just tried this latest driver and it builds properly; it
correctly induces the serial driver to create /dev/tts/1
when mwave.o loads and to delete it when mwave.o unloads;
and it allows me to establish a connection. No problems
encountered so far on:
   ThinkPad 600 51U (266 MHz Pentium II processor)
   linux-2.4.6-ac2 + Mwave driver patch 20010718

MWAVE DRIVER USERS! Please note that the name of the module
has changed from mwavedd.o to mwave.o . You may have to
change your /etc/modules.conf. E.g., I had to change the
   alias char-major-10-219 mwavedd
   alias char-major-10-219 mwave

Although the driver is called "mwave", it does not support
all functions of all Mwave DSPs. Currently it only supports
the 3780i Mwave DSP and only for the purpose of Hayes-
compatible modem implementation. The 3780i DSP is found on
certain IBM ThinkPad laptop models, including the ThinkPad 600.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Schroeder
Mike Sullivan, and IBM for contributing this GPLed driver to
