    No, it's the same old semi-random pty breakage. My kernels are built
    without inotify.

    A bisection has identified Alan's

    pty: Rework the pty layer to use the normal buffering logic
    d945cb9cce20ac7143c2de8d88b187f62db99bdc

    as the culprit. This patch introduces a massive number of bogus
    failures in the gcc testsuite. Subsequent pty/tty patches do fix
    most of those failures, but clearly not all.
