    Hmmm. Isn't that going to break things for existing users?

    For example, I currently have this in /etc/modprobe.d/hisax to get the two
    cards to work correctly:
    options hisax type=9,11 protocol=2,2 irq=10 io=0x398

    This effectively translates to:
    - ITK card: type=9 protocol=2 irq=10 io=0x398
    - Diva card: type=11 protocol=2

    To what would I have to change this?

    I suspect there will at least have to be a major update in Documentation to
    tell people how options should now be set.

    I think that I have the correct config (unset options omitted):
    CONFIG_ISDN=m
    CONFIG_ISDN_I4L=m
    # ISDN feature submodules
    # ISDN4Linux hardware drivers
    # Passive cards
    CONFIG_ISDN_DRV_HISAX=m
    # D-channel protocol features
    CONFIG_HISAX_EURO=y
    CONFIG_HISAX_MAX_CARDS=8
    # HiSax supported cards
    CONFIG_HISAX_16_3=y
    CONFIG_HISAX_IX1MICROR2=y
    CONFIG_HISAX_DIEHLDIVA=m

    Note that HISAX_16_3 and HISAX_IX1MICROR2 are y/n config options; making
    those modular is not allowed.

    This results in the following modules under drivers/isdn:
    /lib/modules/2.6.25-isdn/kernel/drivers/isdn/hisax:
    hisaxdiva.ko hisax.ko libhisax.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.25-isdn/kernel/drivers/isdn/i4l:
    isdn.ko

    So AFAICT, I should still be loading hisax for the ITK card.

    Also, I doubt that depmod is supposed to fail like the way I saw. Seems to
    me that the "loop" errors during depmod are the cause of the modules not
    being loadable.
    Note that 'modprobe hisaxdiva' fails with the exact same message as for
    hisax and that depmod even explicitly says that the modules are "ignored"!

    Cheers,
    FJP
