The Hisax driver will crash 2.0.30 unless you apply all the isdn patches
at The 2.0.29 isdn patches consist of one main patch and 4
smaller patches. Without the 4 smaller patches, the kernel will crash.



P.S. I hope that those 4 smaller patches will be included in 2.0.31 and
not just the main patch....
P.S.1. I also hope that the old ISDN stuff will be fased out quickly to
avoid mixups and provide clearity.
