I have written a custom plugin for a protocol that 'wraps' other protocol pdus (gsm_sms in this case, eg DELIVER_SM). Is there a simple way to call the existing dissector from the custom plugin? Building on ubuntu, using wireshark 3.4.5.

"Other protocol PDUs" in general, or just gsm_sms?

I.e., are you trying to find out how to specifically use gsm_sms, or will that plugin be able to wrap other PDUs?

Found solution by inspecting existing usage of call_dissector_XXX() family of functions.
