Yes, citing Miod, "after a few years they realized ours was better".
I added it as a wrapper in kern_timeout.c because I was already tired,
and it took me 13 hours in total to make it work - I was, until now,
just too lazy to change all the calls from callout to timeout.

Hm, I guess it's time for me to test and patch, then. I hope you
don't want it this week :)
But this feedback makes me focus more on that - even if I myself
have no ISDN, a couple of friends do have.
Just another issue: for the "original" i4b, the author (Hellmuth
Michaelis) requests a postcard from the home town of every user
as a licence fee. This was not mentioned in the NetBSD code I
imported, but I have added this remark and his address to the
MAKEDEV file, it gets outputted on "./MAKEDEV isdns".
I think, since NetBSD apparently doesn't need it, it can't be
_enforced_ on our users, but keeping it there won't hurt. (I'm
sending four postcards at once, keeps my shipping budget low :)
