Hi Krzysztof, Arnd

I have a use case for hdlc_cisco and hdlc_raw_eth. But it uses a lot
of out of tree code, the DAHDI driver framework for E1 cards, and an
E1 card which is not part of DAHDI.

Given how much of this is out of tree, i would understand if you
eventually decide to remove this HDLC code.
