Cleaning up the entire isdn code certainly will, but that particular
problem is in fact much more limited. The function in question is
declared, along with several other also much too generically named
ones, in drivers/isdn/sc/card.h which is included nowhere outside
drivers/isdn/sc. So these are really private functions of the
SpellCaster driver which could easily be renamed.

OTOH good old SpellCaster was an ISA card, and the sc driver depends
on the deprecated I4L framework. I wonder if it's worth any effort.
