Inertia would be one reason -- since my first patchset, LAPDm has moved
from BB into libosmocore, so I just tagged along.

On the practical side, I see two reasons now:

i) if we want to hook it into LAPDm, it needs to be where lapdm.c is

ii) libosmocore has a testsuite, so I could just stuff some testcases in
there

In the future, we can also add the BTS-side implementation.  I don't
think they can share much code, but it might make sense to have both in
the same place.

I can spin a patch series directly on top of osmocom-bb, but the
testcases will probably not make it.


Thanks,
Alex
