What puzzles me is that we only find these "#ifdef CONFIG_NETDEVICES"
guards in this file and not in isdn_net.c, were all the ioctl commands
guarded that way seem to be calling into. On first glance that doesn't
make much sense.

(Actually the idea of having ISDN without NETDEVICES is a bit puzzling
too. But there are too many parts of the isdn subsystem that I'm
unfamiliar with to say whether that can make sense.)
