    I suggested that before. Linus didn't like that. Actually in time you will
    see all input devices moved to drivers/input. It will become more and
    more a mess if we don't. I have various devices such as touchscreens,
    keyboard, joysticks etc that are serial devices. It is such a nasty hack
    at present to reach into char/joytsick to get something like a touchscreen
    working. IMO we should have things in the following order:

    /drivers/serial -> Yes I plan a rewrite of the serial layer.

    /driver/char -> The future console system will be inptu api
    based so input needs to be first.

    Things like hardware protocols, USB, RS232 should come first. Then char
    devices like input and things in char come next.
