I wouldn't change it.  In fact, Linux allows _any_ character except a NULL in a
filename, although POSIX doesn't.  (Well, I wouldn't use a '/' in a filename
even if I escaped it out the wazoo!)

The kernel stack is really small and doesn't grow, so a buffer allocated on the
stack could cause "load-dependent instability".  Using a "vmalloc" and a "vfree"
is fast, cheap and easy.

1. Are linux drivers for i810e AMR modems and AC97 sound capabilities in the works?

I'd like to work with low-cost i810e motherboards for some linux terminals I
have to build. I do see mention of i810 support from OSS (is i810e any
different?), and intel has the accelerated X-server
http://support.intel.com/support/graphics/intel810/linuxsoftware.htm,
but what about the AMR modem?

I was hoping that since this was now such a common piece of hardware,
someone had found a way to make that particular 'winmodem' a 'linmodem'.

Its important for my project because I have to factor the cost and expansion
slot of a modem in or out, based on the availability of linux 810 drivers.

Thanks for any info.
