    You're saying it's easier to replace an embedded kernel than a userspace
    file on an embedded system? Heh, that's funny.

    And no, it's not easier to repace a kernel on a "server" than a
    userspace file, due to all sorts of good reasons (certifications,
    support contracts, etc...)

    Hm, how about this, as the TTY and serial driver[1] maintainer, I will
    not accept this kind of patch at all.

    Is that final enough for you?
