SubjectRe: [PATCH] detour TTY driver - now ttyprintk
From
Date
Hi,

Please bear with me for a bit longer, because i got slightly modified
perspective of some things i did within the driver.
I.e. somewhere down the road i forgot that my pre-formatting function
does not really limit output buffer size with its "one-line" buffer
size. So now 4K output size is assumed and always provided by
write_room(). The other thing is that i tried to resolve two things
being in conflict. I tried to fit driver to existing distro
initialization, which required immediate output also for not line
terminated strings. And on the other hand not line terminated strings
could have been provided by line discipline all the time. So i finally
removed immediate output code and let user takes care by terminating
lines if immediate output is required.

There is additional possibility to fine tune ratelimiting and printk
delaying parameters via defines also with more comments added.

Alan, if you agree, i would send this one to GregKH?

regards, Samo
