Does anyone have the source code for the existing drivers? Also,
does the HARDWARE support HFC on input? Or more simply, are both the
RTS & CTS lines connected to the RS-232 and the UART? I'm
considering "hacking" up a device driver that uses both input and
output HFC. I simply CAN'T STAND not being able to use 19200 to talk
to a modem that cost half as much as my 7300.

I will be happy to make the driver public domain after it has been
tested, assuming of course I get it working.
