The following patch, built against linux-2.6.7, includes the driver
source code, the arch source code (which interacts with firmware and
provides an arch abstracted interface to the driver), and installation
documentation for this driver.
This driver implements a virtual console server which provides a tty
interface for interacting with the virtual consoles of logically
partitioned operating systems on Power-5 hardware from within another
linux partition. This is required because a physical console adapter
for each partition on a large multi-partition system is impractical.
We would like this patch considered for inclusion into the mainline
I'm interested in any comments and critiques.
