Well, as of now we don't have any support for GPRS at all.  Adding
support for GPRS is a big task, as right now the scheduler in our L1
does only support classic circuit-switched GSM.  So you would have to
implement the GPRS (52 multiframe, ...) scheduling, as well as the
RLC/MAC layer as a start.

Have you been using OsmocomBB at all so far?  If not, I strongly suggest
you get a compatible phone and familiarize yourself with our tools,
their usage and the software architecture.
