[arm-allstar] adding ATA's

Hi Doug & Co.,

RE: adding ATA's to our PI2.

We may add additional PI2's later more so for load sharing should we 
find they can't handle multiple things at once.

However for now we'd like to try it on the one we have set up now.

Also back when we ran Gentoo Linux for our All Star the all seeing all 
knowing Duuude had things set up for us so we could dial in from our 
ATA's enter a PIN and gain access to the All_Star network from the 
phones locally without having to use a radio.
This would be a nice feature to have again so that in it's self might be 
enough to want it all on the same device instead of trying to link two 

Soon as I get a chance I'll start Googling how it's done but if anyone 
wants to throw up a few suggestions or examples it would speed things up 
a lot.

Our last system was some years ago and I think we were running Asterisk 
1.2.x originally from memory.
But it's been a lot of years since I have tinkered with such things.

While this can be done I would advise not mixing on the same system as 
Allstar. As cheap as these boards are why not run a separate board to do 
that. There are many ready to go images out there like incredible PBX 
etc. They use much later versions of Asterisk and have much more PBX 
capability and run in a graphical environment on the BBB or RPi. Later 
on you could connect the two via your LAN just as well as having them on 
the same server

That being said if you really want to use the Asterisk Allstar image 
also as a PBX it can be done by adding a sip account for each individual 
phone with a corresponding extension stanza. It would have to  be done 
manually and it would require a lot of experimentation which would 
require restarts that would disrupt the radio side of things. You also 
would have to follow the Asterisk 1.4 or earlier command set.
