isdn_cause - Description of ISDN cause messages.
This document describes the cause messages, used with the ISDN D-channel protocols EDSS1
and 1TR6 and their format, visible to the user.
Cause messages are 2-byte information elements, describing the state transitions of an
ISDN line. Each cause message describes its origination (location) in one byte, while the
cause code is described in the other byte. Internally, when EDSS1 is used, the first byte
contains the location while the second byte contains the cause code. When using 1TR6, the
first byte contains the cause code while the location is coded in the second byte. In the
Linux ISDN subsystem, the cause messages visible to the user are unified to avoid confu-
sion. All user visible cause messages are displayed as hexadecimal strings. These strings
always have the location coded in the first byte, regardless if using 1TR6 or EDSS1. When
using EDSS1, these strings are preceeded by the character 'E'.
