Sync PPP layer

Hi linuxers,

I am writing a driver for a synchronous serial card. I wonder if
Linux kernel has any kind of generic sync PPP layer (and if it has,
where I can read more about its interface). I have found some sync PPP stuff
in ISDN tree, but it seems to work on ISDN devices only. There is
a generic HDLC/LAPB layer. I think there should be something similar
for sync PPP. How can I run Sync PPP on top of a generic character device?

Thanx in advance
