+=====================
+The Devpts Filesystem
+=====================
+
+Each mount of the devpts filesystem is now distinct such that ptys
+and their indicies allocated in one mount are independent from ptys
+and their indicies in all other mounts.
+
+All mounts of the devpts filesystem now create a ``/dev/pts/ptmx`` node
+with permissions ``0000``.
+
+To retain backwards compatibility the a ptmx device node (aka any node
+created with ``mknod name c 5 2``) when opened will look for an instance
+of devpts under the name ``pts`` in the same directory as the ptmx device
+node.
+
+As an option instead of placing a ``/dev/ptmx`` device node at ``/dev/ptmx``
+it is possible to place a symlink to ``/dev/pts/ptmx`` at ``/dev/ptmx`` or
+to bind mount ``/dev/ptx/ptmx`` to ``/dev/ptmx``. If you opt for using
+the devpts filesystem in this manner devpts should be mounted with
+the ``ptmxmode=0666``, or ``chmod 0666 /dev/pts/ptmx`` should be called.
+
+Total count of pty pairs in all instances is limited by sysctls::
+
+ kernel.pty.max = 4096 - global limit
+ kernel.pty.reserve = 1024 - reserved for filesystems mounted from the initial mount namespace
+ kernel.pty.nr - current count of ptys
+
+Per-instance limit could be set by adding mount option ``max=<count>``.
+
+This feature was added in kernel 3.4 together with
+``sysctl kernel.pty.reserve``.
+
+In kernels older than 3.4 sysctl ``kernel.pty.max`` works as per-instance limit.
