Re: [PATCH] fix n_tty/pty input/output buffer full and other miscchar handling
From: Joe Peterson

I have separated this patch into its separate components, since I know
we are still thinking about how to address the pty "gridlock" issue, and
at least two of the other issues addressed can probably be fixed now.
I will shortly send out 4 new patches that replace the original combined
"tty-fix-buffer-full-handling.patch" patch (these all will apply, in
order, on top of your current tty git tree):
These two can probably be applied and tested now, since I believe these
are straightforward fixes. #1 simply fixes what looks like an oversight
in the output block processing WRT continuation chars and ctrl chars.
#2 fixes what appear to be problems that cause loss of characters
because of errors in handling situations when the input buffer is full
or nearly so.
These are the ones that we are still discussing.
Hope this splitting up of the patch helps!
