last week as a friend have some problem with his modem a bewan usb adsl, 
I look the driver they provide for linux [1].
The driver support usb and pci device and seem able to use atm interface 
or use a fake ethernet interface.

The pci driver seem to provide raw atm packet so I believe it could be 
interresting to split usbatm into a raw atm driver and an usb part.

But the firmware seem to be excecuted on the host cpu, for that they 
need to include in their driver a libm !!!
Also there are in their driver some c++ file (don't know if they are 
realy used in normal case).

Weel I think the "Swapping to the host computer " from ADI is beat by 
this desing ;)
