     Well, not exactly. It's part source and part proprietary object file.
The code for the serial driver is open source. This is what allows it to
work with multiple kernel versions. However, the code used to control the
winmodem itself is in the file ltmobj.o, which is closed source. Since the
ltmobj.o file itself is not dependent on kernel version, the respective
parts can be compiled and linked to form a working module for kernels 2.2.14
and up as well as the 2.4 kernels.
