Running diff between the two versions (both cpe_control and driver) it
seems that it adds support for remotely changing xDSL mode and
requesting system reboot over DSL link. Seems to be DrayTek's way of
doing autoconfiguration. I don't know if this is generic DSL feature
or is it meant for some specific ISP but it probably needs matching
firmware and definitely userspace support. It's probably safe to
include it in openwrt but I doubt that anyone will make use of this,
especially knowing that those functions might disappear from the API
if we get newer driver source from elsewhere.

Sure, I'll flash my device with this and let it run for some time to
see if there are any problems.
