Applied.

In my experience with OsmoGMR, the actual demod isn't all that CPU intensive.
The channelization and resampling to a multiple of symbol rate is
what's expensive.

A few things I don't like in the current demod :
 - Don't use the FCCH to properly lock to carrier
 - Only works for continuous carrier .. can't possibly use it for DMO
or even uplink I think.

If yours could lift those limitation that'd be great :p


Cheers,
