(I'm still hopelessly busy at my real job, but I did find a bit of time
to examine this quickly; hopefully I'll have more time to commit to work
on stuff starting this weekend.)

It looks like more than the neospy stuff got yanked; there's a few
vestigial fragments of some of the various changes left (declarations
mainly) but nothing that looks like it will change anything from the old
behavior.  So from my point of view, the new stable has absolutely no
improvements for GSM handling on the GTA01 nor does it have any of the
GSM flow-control stuff for both 01 and 02.

Is this intended?  If so, what do we need to do to get any improvements
into stable?

[In the meantime, I'll rebase the patches to the stable and re-release
updated kernels independently, as I did previously; I notice from the
IRC channel chatter that people are using the changes.]
