I would love to be able to send some patches. In order to do so, I
need some information about how to interface with the MPSAFE TTY
subsystem and how to adapt an existing driver. I am not the only
person to have indicated a need for some hand-holding and I was under
the impression that Ed would provide this but, to date, all I have is
suggestions to look at patched drivers.

OTOH, a piece of middle-ware that doesn't work with the underlying
hardware drivers makes that hardware useless. MPSAFE is probably more
important than any particular non-console driver but Ed is talking
about disconnecting almost every non-console TTY driver.
Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
