linux-next: manual merge of the bkl-config tree with the tty tree
From: Stephen Rothwell
Date: Mon Feb 28 2011 - 01:40:17 EST
Today's linux-next merge of the bkl-config tree got a conflict in
drivers/staging/Kconfig between commits
4a6514e6d096716fb7bedf238efaaca877e2a7e8 ("tty: move obsolete and broken
tty drivers to drivers/staging/tty/") and
4c37705877e74c02c968735c2eee0f84914cf557 ("tty: move obsolete and broken
generic_serial drivers to drivers/staging/generic_serial/") from the tty
tree and commit a3ba01b63468c925518da2da0ac3be11358f60cb ("BKL: move
CONFIG_BKL to staging") from the bkl-config tree.
I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary.

+ This is the traditional lock that is used in old code instead
+ of proper locking. All drivers that use the BKL should depend
+ on this symbol.
+ A small number of drivers still require this. All drivers that
+ use the BKL should be changed to a better serialisation method
+ or they will be removed in 2.6.39.
