Why does it simplify gsm server logic? What do you mean by independent
and homogenous?

If you want to change the way you access the modem in the msm7*, you
must modify the AMSS. It is the software which provides us with the
shared memory fifos where the serial nodes run on. The kernel driver
is only a thing that manages the data flow on them and provides the
devices. So that would be very hard. If I got this wrong and you want
to make userspace software that "sorts" different commands it's
something else. But I don't understand the reason. Does it work like
that on the mokos?
