It seems to me that this might be easier to support with kernel threads
(assuming that the thread context switching code doesn't assume that kernel
threads do not and cannot use floating point, which presumably said code
would -- at first).  Of course, a software modem probably would want to
run in interrupt context in a kernel not designed for real-time response.
