last week as a friend have some problem with his modem a bewan usb adsl,
I look the driver they provide for linux .
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 ;)
