Patch to apply to ppp-2.4.4 to support all serial speeds supported by kernel (749 bytes, patch)

Description Jason Vas Dias 2008-05-12 22:09:47 UTC
Description of problem:

Please could you add the new higher speeds in /usr/include/bits/termios.h
to pppd's sys-linux.c - it currently only supports speeds up to 1MB/s,
which makes use of new high speed serial cards rather pointless - eg.
my new Sierra Airport HSDPA / 3G / GSM card.

I applied the enclosed patch to make pppd support all speeds currently
supported by the Linux kernel, ie. up to 4MBs .

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

ppp-2.4.4-6

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
Create an /etc/ppp/peers file containing, eg. :
'
speed 4000000
'
Run 'pppd call XXX', where XXX is the name given the /etc/ppp/peers file.
 
Actual results:
pppd will emit the error message:
  'speed 4000000 is not supported'
and silently configure the default speed (9600bps).
 

Expected results:
pppd should configure the terminal with the speed requested .
