Righto, need to fix that.

It took quite some time for me to make up my mind about that and by now I
indeed think userland is a good place for that piece of code. Eventually, we
will might see a kernel MUXer or not, then we can reconsider. But until then
I want something that gets the job done and gsm0710muxd does it.

Agreed. The code layout is a bit on the ugly side. Patches very welcome.

Hmm, tarball-only? Try
svn checkout svn://projects.linuxtogo.org/svn/smartphones/trunk smartphones
and check for software/gsm0710muxd.
Sorry, no git at linuxtogo.
