Subject[PATCH 1/2] drivers:staging:ti-st: Update TODO
From: Pavan Savoy <>

An important TODO was to remove global references in TI-ST driver,
thereby providing a context to the driver.
This should also serve as a small step in removal of the single device

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
+5. Remove global references by providing a context which can be moved around the driver like the other ldisc drivers. (ldiscs tend to use tty's disc_data and platform devices use the device's driver data)
+6. 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.
