sorry, but that seems to be an US centric view of things. This
"minority" in Europe isn't such a minority at least in Germany and The
Netherlands. I don't mind to have an isdnutils with autodial off by
default in slink if it doesn't break things. Further the aic7xxx
support is included in 2.0.36 (although it's patched in our 2.0.35
kernel as well, 5.1.6 beeing the latest version).
