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.
