Hello all,
I have a T1/E1 device driver: ( completed till PCI initialization and other
device-internals initialization,including interrupts handling procedures),
now i am not understanding how to provide the interface to upper layers?. I
have walked through the lapb-module.txt and some code of IPX, but still the
things are not clear. Can any one help/guide me?
