BTW I noticed a funny thing: the file devlist.h I tried to
patch doesn't always exist - as it gets built from the file
pci.ids in the same directory. Noone complained on that :)
What I don't understand is why pci_ids.h doesn't get
generated from pci.ids as well.

So, here's the new patch, sent along also to the pci.ids
maintainer, along with the required info.

12d4 was DGM&S. Then DGM&S was aquired by Comverse, and
later the corresponding activities (and the same PCI boards
manufacturing) went to Comverse spinoff Ulticom. So, in fact,
Ulticom is just DGM&S under a different name and controlled
by Comverse. I guess the PCI vendor registry should get
updated at some point, but I thought it could be a great
thing if Linux knew it ahead. (Currently reported by the
PCI driver "DGM&S" is obsolete - such entity doesn't exist
any more). Naturally, I have got this info being a
Comverse employee.

This patch only has effect on kernel PCI driver reporting
on the 12d4 vendor ID. There is no Linux kernel code which
supports the corresponding SS7 signalling boards.

Kind regards,
