Hi and thanks for your comments Alan.

The existence of the callback is checked in the function
uart_tty_open. If either break_ctl or tiocmget is NULL we do not allow
sleep and this code will never run.

OK. We can embed the work struct in the device structure.

OK. I like the debug system we have now (using module parameter to set
debug level in runtime), but I've received comments regarding this
before so I assume we will have to switch to standard printouts.
Is it OK to use defines or inline functions to add "CG2900" before and
'\n' after (as BT_INFO in include/net/bluetooth/bluetooth.h)?

I will have to check with the guy who wrote this code. I think he put
it there for a reason.

As above, I will check.

The guy responsible for this is thinking through a new design, where
we can move the hardware specific handling to another place.

See answer above. It is checked in another place.

And ditto as well :-)

I don't quite understand your comment here. This particular code is
inspired of the Bluetooth ldisc code and there it is used like. It
seems to work fine so we do it the same way.
How would you prefer it to be?

We use a define to get a debug printout when setting state, but I
understand it's not so popular so I guess we will have to skip it.
I guess it won't help if we would use an inline function instead of a
define (which would mean we could skip the capitals)?

OK. We will add tty_kref_get/put handling.

OK. We can probably skip registering the callback function completely otherwise.

OK. To be changed.

OK. We will try to figure out a new design.
I'm not too happy about putting the ldisc part in Bluetooth though
since it is only partly Bluetooth, it is also GPS and FM. Better could
maybe be under char/?
