OK yes see this now.

The pr_fmt bit will do what you want for a non dev_dbg type thing. See

That may go away when you clean up the device side. The line discipline
can be attached to any device so must be multi-device aware, the hardware
driver can certainly be single device only if you can only ever have one

[Although its a good idea to design it so it can be fixed because you
never know when you'll find your sales team just sold someone a two
device solution ;) ]

You copied a security hole from the bluetooth driver which we found a
couple of weeks ago

Check it is valid, in your case probably on open just refuse to attach to
a read only port.

Works for me - there is an ongoing "we must move tty ldiscs and core tty
code somewhere more sensible of their own" discussion, so if it is
dropped into char, it'll move with them just fine.
