Development of DAHDI driver for icE1usb
So far, the icE1usb reuired a custom user-space driver (osmo-e1d) in order to operate. While this has the advantage that no kerne/operating system level code is required, it has a few disadvantages such as the increased overhead of frequent context switches, the increased propability of overruns/underruns and the lack of interoperability with other software outside the Osmocom universe.
A first version of a DAHDI hardware driver for icE1usb is now available for public beta-testing, for details see redmine issue #4923
Using this DAHDI driver, it should be possible to use icE1usb with any DAHDI-using application, such as Asterisk, FreeSWITCH and others.
