SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/6] drivers:misc: sources for Init manager module

Perhaps but its up to you how you write your low level driver and how the
ldisc indicates it wishes to be active (eg speed B0 is used to indicate
'no carrier' in many cases)

You don't need a tty if you are simply demuxing some kind of stream of
bytes to/from the hardware and you gain nothing from the tty layer and
user space interfaces such as control signal and speed setting.

That may be even cleaner in your case as you can then then provide
suitable links between your demux and the drivers attached to it
indicating when they should be on or off.
