If the other side has ended the call, you should get a DICSONNECT
message or similar.  IIRC you get a CONNECT after the call is
established and some other message when the call is taken down.

Also, if you have the AT%CPI call progress indications on, the call
progress (even the teardown progress) should be reported quite verbose
by unsolicited %CPI responses from the modem.

In any case, if there really is a need: FIC/OM does have the sources of
the AT command parsers inside the GSM firmware.  So additional
indication could most likely added without too much effort.  That would
still be a much cleaner solution than some kind of 'hardware fix'.

AFAIK, anything that alters call state would generate some kidn of
message on the AT command interface, which in turn should wake up the
