SubjectRe: Patch to add SysRq handling to 3270 console

Hi Christoph,

The z990 is the official name for the new mainframe machine. The z990
code drop contains the changes & new features for the new machine. The
IBM process forces us to publish the new features patches on developer
works first before we can think about integration into the mainline.
You may not like it but this is a restriction we as the s390 team at
IBM have to live with.

> Btw, what's the state of 2.4.21-rc3 vs s390(x)?
No too good. It basically works but there is a big bunch of patches
missing. I sent them to Marcelo for integration a few weeks ago but
to me Marcelo is a black hole. Never heard anything about it, not
even a "no". I sent Alan a copy of the patches adapted to his -ac
tree. He accepted most of it into rc2-ac2.
