    It's not a misunderstanding if you realise that email is threaded and
    you _follow_ the individual threads. Robin has a similar concern to
    you but _additionally_ wants something that you don't.

    So really to remove the "confusion" from this discussion you should
    avoid trying to correct replies to Robin's emails.

    Doubt it with todays opinions about /proc contents. Probably more
    appropriate in sysfs, if someone can be bothered to do the work
    required to properly integrate tty and sysfs.

    Don't look at me; I'm not doing very much with serial anymore.
