Re: [PATCH 0/3] [RFC] Support for ADSL modems

2011/5/6 Pantelis Koukousoulas <pktoss gmail com>
Hi, before I leave for, this patch series implements the initial
version of the support for ADSL modems in network manager.

  * PPPoA-only for now. I hope that PPPoE can be added with not too much trouble
    as well, if it is possible to just create a new ethernet device for the "nas0"
    interface that br2684ctl creates and reuse the already existing "wired" device
    PPPoE support.

    This way the adsl part can manage the ATM part of the equation just like it
    does now for PPPoA.

  * This is the "duct tape and gum" implementation, according to the "first make
    it work, then make it work right" motto. There are lots of bugs/limitations
    duplicate code etc but at least it works for me (TM) now :P

  * My initial patch that added everything at once got bounced for moderation
    due to its size, so (for size and easier reviewing reasons) I split it to
    3 patches, in a bisect-friendly way (after each patch, NM builds and does
    something useful)

  * I 'm now happily waiting for your comments / advice / testing etc :) :)


Maybe this can be a little off-topic, but is there any intent to add support to PPPoE over wifi?
