    +1. A per-device/tty port context required to support multiple devices
    +on same platform.
    +2. REMOVE the sysfs entry PID passing mechanism, since there should
    +be a better way to request user-space to install line discipline.
    +3. Re-view/Re-work on the locking.
    +4. Re-structure to make the ldisc driver more generic for chipsets which mux
    +multiple connectivity (BT, FM, GPS) upon 1 TTY port.
    +5. Step up and maintain this driver to ensure that it continues
    +to work. Having the hardware for this is pretty much a
    +requirement. If this does not happen, the will be removed in
    +the 2.6.35 kernel release.
    +Please send patches to Greg Kroah-Hartman <>.
