In linux kernel since version 2.6.12  
If you have two serial connections to some other computer (this
usually requires two modems and two telephone lines) and you use
SLIP (the protocol for sending Internet traffic over telephone
lines) or PPP (a better SLIP) on them, you can make them behave like
one double speed connection using this driver. Naturally, this has
to be supported at the other end as well, either with a similar EQL
Linux driver or with a Livingston Portmaster 2e.

Say Y if you want this and read
<file:Documentation/networking/eql.rst>. You may also want to read
section 6.2 of the NET-3-HOWTO, available from

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module
will be called eql. If unsure, say N.
