There are good reasons for kernel AX.25. Notably that lots of people want
AX.25 layer services and IP isnt practical for all users. KA9Q for the CBM/64
isn't available yet for example. Things like the packet satellites need
AX.25 too. As to processing overheads, AX.25 UI frames are about the same
as SLIP and lower than PPP or CSLIP
