    Subject[PATCH 1/6] allow LEGACY_PTYS to be set to 0
    From: Kay Sievers <>

    The count of legacy pty devices can be set by a kernel commandline
    parameter. For the distro kernel, we would like to disable all pty's
    by default, but keep the opportunity to request devices on the kernel
