[OpenWrt-Devel] lantiq DSL drivers / firmware info

As I mentioned earlier I am already running with very minimal
configuration. My control process parameters list looks like this:

/sbin/vdsl_cpe_control -i -n /sbin/dsl_notify.sh -f
/lib/firmware/vdsl.bin -A /lib/firmware/vdsl.scr

-i is required, but actual initialization bits are not (in my case).
As far as I know this selects operation mode of the firmware
(VDSL/ADSL). Not sure if firmware can autodetect this, or if it just
defaults to VDSL.

I am passing -A vdsl autoboot script just for peace of mind (it was
included with firmware). My connection seems to work exactly the same
without it.

We indeed could use some more testing. Preferably not only on
different annexes but different ISPs as well.
