Re: [PATCH] ACP Modem (Mwave)

I thought I would add
one more datapoint ...
kernel 2.4.6-ac5 +
mwave-patch-20010718 on
IBM ThinkPad 600 41U:
works fine thus far.

The userspace tools,
init script, etc also
work flawless on the
current RedHat Rawhide
(beta for 7.2).

cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.4.6-ac5
(rml@icbm) (gcc version
2.96 20000731 (Red Hat
Linux 7.1 2.96-94)) #1

I don't use modules (I
enabled them
specifically for this),
so I would like to see
this able to compile
into the kernel. To
that effect, I think
this should be submitted
for inclusion into the
kernel proper. It is
GPL now, and it is
apparently stable.
Perhaps Alan can pick it
up for the -ac tree?

Once its in the kernel
RedHat and others need
to be encouraged to
include packages in
their distribution :) --
i see SuSE does already.

Good job IBM.
