The only beef I have about Sangoma drivers is that on one ocassion, an 
upgrade to one of the 'stable' releases caused a reproducible kernel 
panic.  It was so bad the box would panic in mid-boot.  If this was a 
remote upgrade I would have been in big trouble.  Luckily I was on-site 
and Sangoma support was quick and provided a fix within 24 hours.  But 
something like this has never happened with any Digium cards I have 
worked with.  This incident has caused me to have second thoughts about 
installing Sangoma cards at datacenters and remote locations.
