Kind of. This is very good, it takes care of the situation with emergency
call which cannot be terminated with CHLD commands.
But I think there are more issues. If I am not mistaken STE-modems have
the following behavior:
CHLD=1X can only terminate call in state ACTIVE or HELD. (I think
this is as STE interprets the standards).
The standards specify that CHLD=1X can only terminate an ACTIVE call. Most
modems implement it this way. There are vendor extensions that provide this
functionality (e.g. CHLD=7X on TI.) By default oFono assumes that
release_specific will simply fail if a user attempts to use it on an e.g. HELD
call with no modem support.
a) If you are in a active call and receives a new incoming call (ALERTING)
and want to reject the new ALERTING call, then STE modem cannot
terminate this call with CHLD=1X. It has to be terminated with CHLD=0
(cause=BUSY) or ATH (possible CHUP).
Ok, lets get the terminology clear here. In this case the incoming call is
not ALERTING, it is WAITING. WAITING calls are always rejected by using
CHLD=0. ALERTING calls are always outgoing calls that transitioned from
DIALING to alerting the user.
b) Or you may have the following situation. One call on HOLD,
another ACTIVE call, and then you receive a new incoming call ALERTING.
If you try to terminate the new incoming (ALERTING) call with CHLD=0,
I think you as a side effect will terminate the call on hold as well.
If I am not mistaken ATH (possible CHUP) would be the correct in this
situation for STE modems
The standards are quite clear here, the WAITING call always takes precedence
and thus only the WAITING call is affected. Can you check that STE modems do
indeed get this wrong? If the modem is standards compliant, oFono does the
right thing here.
c) If you have an call on hold and initiate a new call, but want to
terminate the newly initiated call (DIALING), then this call cannot be
terminated with CHLD=1X, but you would have to use ATH (or possible CHUP).
Yes, so this is the case that we do need to take care of in the core. Most
modems let us get away with sending release_specific up to this point.

No, I don't think so. I think ATH will only terminate one call.
In order to terminate all calls you would probably need to do something
like: AT+CHLD=0;H But I'm not sure this works in all possible scenarios
Can you check the behavior of ATH vs CHUP on STE modems? We need to send the
right one here or both HELD and ACTIVE/DIALING/ALERTING will be terminated.
If using CHUP and ATH doesn't work out we'll have to come up with another
