For 2.0.29 and 2.0.30 i sent approx. 4 ISDN patches. Unfortunately
_ALL_ of them got lost (maybe due to your moving to US).
Result is that

### the ISDN-Subsystem (especially the Teles) in stock-2.0.30 does _NOT_
### run.

Beeing tired of sending patches which don't make it into kernel, on the
Linux-Kongress in May, i talked with Steve and he gave me write-access to
his CVS at vger. From then i never sent patches but checked in myself at

This evening i will prepare a ISDN patch for 2.0.30 and send it to you.
PLEASE don't disappoint all those ISDN-users and include it in 2.0.31.
