[PATCH 0/8] tty: split and cleanup headers

From: Jiri Slaby
Date: Fri Jul 23 2021 - 06:31:51 EST

I started writing up kernel-doc documentation of the TTY layer. It
turned out that linux/tty.h is a header containing many structures and
even function definitions. With added kernel-doc documentation for
tty_port, tty_buffer, and other main structures, tty.h grew into a very
large file.

This series moves many declarations/definitions from tty.h to places
where they fit better. For that purpose, we also create two brave new
headers to move there tty_port and tty_buffer structs.

That way, the combination of documentation and code in the headers
remains on maintainable level.

Note: this series is independent (either can be applied first) on the
other series I posted and are not applied yet.

Jiri Slaby (8):
tty: move tty_driver related prototypes to tty_driver.h
tty: include kref.h in tty_driver.h
tty: move ldisc prototypes to tty_ldisc.h
tty: include list & lockdep from tty_ldisc.h
tty: move tty_ldisc_receive_buf to tty_flip.h
tty: move tty_buffer definitions to new tty_buffer.h
tty: move tty_port to new tty_port.h
tty: tty_flip.h needs only tty_buffer and tty_port
