	Oh...  I see.  So kernel-2.6.13-1.1565 is really 2.6.14rc2 (I see the
2.6.14 patches there in the source directory now).  So, any hope of
seeing this filter down into FC4 eventually?  There's been a few
requests for 2.6.13.x and there's at least one USB patch to this kernel
that improves the performance of USB ACM modems beyond the currently
roughly 64K baud cap (I've got several ISDN modems that need at least
128K baud each).  That patch doesn't patch the 2.6.12 kernel cleanly.

	There may not be a good solution but it is definitely confusing.
