As you probably could have imagined after reading my post, I did this 

But while their support for analog and PRI cards seems to be really good 
(from what you hear around), I found their documentation for the 
BRI/A500 card quite a mess.

As of now they officialy only support a configuration with their bri/smg 
daemons. Thats a lot of unneeded overhead for an asterisk only 
configuration, and it also doesn't work on my setup. Gives me all kinds 
of wired segfaults and even kernel panics. Which was the main reason for 
me to ask how to configure it the other way round.
