what of the tty stuff depends on COMPAT_43? I found some ioctls and then
nothing.. I for one use kernel without COMPAT_43 for more than a year and
havent noticed any problems... from my point of view the only serious (=widely
used) consumer of COMPAT_43 is linux emulator (kern/85175 addresses this)

maybe the tty stuff could be separated into some COMPAT_43_TTY and let the rest
of COMPAT_43 die..
