And IMO .line_down too. I can down sync without reset the modem.

And say too that...

Speedtch, and I, use this:

case 0x10:
	if (instance->usbatm.atm_dev->signal != ATM_PHY_SIG_LOST) {
		instance->usbatm.atm_dev->signal = ATM_PHY_SIG_LOST;
		printk(KERN_NOTICE "ADSL line is synchronising\n");

And cxacru use it too from staus 1 to 7.

Isn't it better use ATM_PHY_SIG_UNKNOWN status?

I think that ATM_PHY_SIG_LOST is when you have sync and lost it.

Whit this we can use a generic function to control status, if it is
ATM_PHY_SIG_LOST call .line_start. And don't call it from poll_status
like i do now.

Add a new status to atmdev.h?

Sorry for my english.
