    SubjectRe: serial callout devices
       Date: 	Fri, 28 May 1999 00:32:47 +0200
    From: Florian Lohoff <>

    i am currently starting to write a serial multiboard driver
    for the Aurora Aries 8000P/16000P cards.
    I am wondering if the callout devices are still in use because
    i remember that they are obsolete since the 2.0 times. If i am
    correct do i have to implement them ?

    The kernel has started warning people that the cua devices are obsolete
    as of the 2.2 kernel. Unfortunately not all of the distributions (and
    have been appropriately chastised on another list for not knowing that
    Debian *has* phased out use of the cua devices) have made the cua
    devices go away in their latest 2.2-kernel based distributions. This is
    unfortunate, since a large number of users may still expect that they be
    there. So whether you feel the need to support it is up to you, and
    depends on who your user/customer base is.
