Subject: Update FarSync WAN driver in 2.4.25

Hi,
        please find attached a patch to update the FarSync WAN driver in
the 2.4 and 2.6 Kernels.  The driver has been updated in the following
ways:

1) Provides support for new FarSync cards T1U, T2U, T4U and TE1
2) Provides support for an E1 interface
3) Provides support for a variant of X.21 that allows transmit and
receive clocks
4) Provide a raw socket interface directly to the data from the line.
5) Improves performance with less time in interrupts and more in BH's

In the main the only files affected are the farsync.c and farsync.h
files, although there have been some additions to the if.h file.

Please try to include it in the 2.4.27 and 2.6.6 releases.



Kind Regards
