I found this
which is a SPI driver for a Telit modem that creates a TTY character
driver, ignoring the modem stuff I should be able to port this and
shape it to a Telit SPI TTY GPS driver. So once I get my /dev/ttyGPS0
or whatever I decide on i just pass this to gpsd and it should start
reading NMEA messages all being well or do I need some other setup?
