Kernel drivers provide interface to talk with the modem, but between kernel and UI apps there has to be some interface (for instance dbus based) which maintains connection, provides way to initiate calls, notifies about new messages etc. It's easy to imagine with AT-based modems: kernel provides device in /dev directory to which you can talk, but it would be insane to expect UI apps to talk to modem directly using AT commands. That's what FSO and oFono does, abstracting different modem interfaces into DBus framework. Qtopia has its own, integrated solution.

No, radio drivers is one thing and software which actually talks to the modem is another. I'm asking about the second one.
