Sure.  It's been a while since I looked a comedi (more like 18
months).  Last time I looked, it wasn't obvious to me how to set it up
for continuous streaming.  For our radio apps, if we can't get the A/D
and D/A's to stream, I think it's a non-starter.

Does the existing NI-6035e comedi driver work?
Is there a way to make it stream continuously?
If so, there shouldn't be a problem gluing it into GNU Radio.
We probably ought to have generic comedi sources and sinks, but for
now, let's get your device working.

Let me know how I can help.
