Ilya, is there some reason you are ignoring the tty maintainer and
sending these to Linus directly? These patches need to be tested in
linux-next, so at the earliest, they can be merged into Linus's tree for
3.3, they are NOT 3.2 material, especially given that they are not even
accepted by the current tty developers.

So please work with us, and don't try to circumvent the existing
process, it is not the way we work here.

Especially as this specific patch was already rejected, for very good
reasons, why are you ignoring those reasons?
