It is not. *g*

Receiving SMS is something the GSM unit makes almost autonomously.
gsmd (the driver ;) )just reads the messages out if they arrive.

No need to cram this into the kernel. Besides the fact that sms is 
something completely different than a network stack with addresses 
protocols and so on...

Designing a filter system is no black magic. Beginning with the fact 
that it does not have to filter thousands of packets with low latency.
So even a five year old could make a decent filter that would be enough 
for filtering sms. ;)

In Germany we have the saying 'shooting sparrows with canons' ;)
