There are a couple of things that need to be changed besides isdnctrl.
isdnlog, for instance, as the format of the D-channel messages as reported
via /dev/isdnctrl0 has changed. I think iprofd also needs to be changed,
as I've had a report of runaway kernel messages from HiSax about some
length mismatch which I believe is triggered by that.
If 2.0.36 goes in (which I would like to see personally, as that supports
*MUCH* more ISDN hardware, has bugs removed, is certified, etc.), I think
I'd prefer to see the potato version of isdnutils put into slink.
That's been tested more by now than a patched slink-update version would
