    Greg is referring to CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED. I didn't know it existed.
    If I had known I'd have saved maybe an hour and I perhaps wouldn't have had
    to revert gregkh-driver-tty-device.patch

    What mailing list was this discussed and reviewed on?

    The option should default to "y".

    The changelog is wrong. Or garbled. Certainly confusing.
