    Read the above again. Read what that common sequence is. Please just READ
    the f*cking code, and read my emails, instead of talking about something
    totally different that I'm not talking about at all.

    The _most_common_ use of "tty_buffer_request_room()" is literally just the
    above insane sequence I quoted, not the case you talk about at all. Don't
    believe me? Use grep.

    What _you_ are talking about is something else, namely the
    tty_prepare_flip stuff. But dammit, that has nothing what-so-ever to do
    with "tty_buffer_request_room()".

    What I was pointing out is that there are a lot of
    "tty_buffer_request_room()" calls, and as far as I can see, all of them
    (or at least a large percentage) are just pure and utter crap.
