As long as they present a DAHDI interface including a 'hard HDLC' D
channel, the BRI signaling support in chan_dahdi will work with them.

The wcb4xxp driver was written specifically for the B410P card, so it
has some assumptions in it:

1) The card has an HFC-4S, so the driver makes no accommodations for 1,
2 or 8 port HFC chips.

2) The card has onboard echo cancelers, and the driver assumes they will
be present and utilizes them.

I don't see why we couldn't accept patches to make the driver support
other HFC cards as well in the future, as long as they were properly
licensed for inclusion in DAHDI.
