6	    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by

15	However, if you wish to modify the HiSax sources, please note the following:
16	
17	HiSax has passed the ITU approval test suite with ELSA Quickstep ISDN cards
18	and Eicon Technology Diva 2.01 PCI card.
19	The certification is only valid for the combination of the tested software
20	version and the tested hardware. Any changes to the HiSax source code may
21	therefore affect the certification.
22	
23	Additional ITU approval tests have been carried out for all generic cards
24	using Colognechip single chip solutions HFC-S PCI A for PCI cards as well
25	as HFC-S USB based USB ISDN ta adapters.
26	These tests included all layers 1-3 and as well all functional tests for 
27	the layer 1. Because all hardware based on these chips are complete ISDN
28	solutions in one chip all cards and USB-TAs using these chips are to be
29	regarded as approved for those tests. Some additional electrical tests
30	of the layer 1 which are independent of the driver and related to a
31	special hardware used will be regarded as approved if at least one 
32	solution has been tested including those electrical tests. So if cards 
33	or tas have been completely approved for any other os, the approval
34	for those electrical tests is valid for linux, too.
35	Please send any questions regarding this drivers or approval abouts to 
36	werner@isdn-development.de 
37	Additional information and the type approval documents will be found
38	shortly on the Colognechip website www.colognechip.com 
39	
40	If you change the main files of the HiSax ISDN stack, the certification will
41	become invalid. Because in most countries it is illegal to connect
42	unapproved ISDN equipment to the public network, I have to guarantee that
43	changes in HiSax do not affect the certification.
44	
45	In order to make a valid certification apparent to the user, I have built in
46	some validation checks that are made during the make process. The HiSax main
47	files are protected by md5 checksums and the md5sum file is pgp signed by
48	myself:
49	
50	KeyID 1024/FF992F6D 1997/01/16 Karsten Keil <kkeil@suse.de>
51	Key fingerprint = 92 6B F7 58 EE 86 28 C8  C4 1A E6 DC 39 89 F2 AA
52	
53	Only if the checksums are OK, and the signature of the file
54	"drivers/isdn/hisax/md5sums.asc" match, is the certification valid; a
55	message confirming this is then displayed during the hisax init process.
56	
57	The affected files are:
58	
59	drivers/isdn/hisax/isac.c
60	drivers/isdn/hisax/isdnl1.c
61	drivers/isdn/hisax/isdnl2.c
62	drivers/isdn/hisax/isdnl3.c
63	drivers/isdn/hisax/tei.c
64	drivers/isdn/hisax/callc.c
65	drivers/isdn/hisax/l3dss1.c
66	drivers/isdn/hisax/l3_1tr6.c
67	drivers/isdn/hisax/cert.c
68	drivers/isdn/hisax/elsa.c
69	drivers/isdn/hisax/diva.c
70	drivers/isdn/hisax/hfc_pci.c
71	
72	Please send any changes, bugfixes and patches to me rather than implementing
73	them directly into the HiSax sources.
74	
75	This does not reduce your rights granted by the GNU General Public License.
76	If you wish to change the sources, go ahead; but note that then the
77	certification is invalid even if you use one of the approved cards.
78	
79	Here are the certification registration numbers for ELSA Quickstep cards:
