I think we should only merge this patch if you also want to
take the patches from Alan mentioned above, otherwise it would
cause more trouble to rebase everything than we can gain from
merging it now.

If this makes sense to you, please pull

git:// tty-for-2.6.35

This contains all of Alan's patches, plus the first one of my
series on top of that.
