    I like to see this an OPTION to limit it to 80 chars, there are some
    people that do have video modes that have line length that are different
    than 80.

    I like to see this as an kernel option.

    I like to see some way to set the interrupt trigger level for the 16550
    serial ports from the command level like this example "setserial
    /dev/modem -trigger-receive 2 -trigger-transmit 2". Of course, this would
    be done under root.
