Well, looking over the specs, these are apparently basically their 16xx
DSP's on a board with a line interface (and they sell the 16xx development
kits for big bux), so I think the most we can hope for is a block of code
to dump to the modem and (hopefully) info on how that code talks to the
PC... so much for a GPL'd driver...
