    The first most useful part would be understand what your pty driver does
    and is required that is not in the base one. Just an idea of what extra
    APIs it provides would be quite useful. If it is stuff like virtual modem
    lines then that is stuff I want to see supported in the base kernel
    anyway.

    By chance.. as to policies about kernel recompiles, that is between you
    and the vendors. Maybe the vendors will add the symbols to their tree for
    you ?

    Equally look at the positives - if the facilities you need are in the
    base kernel your customers won't run into arguments between yourselves
    and the base kernel vendor over support.
