Linus, did any version of the tty speedup code that was floating around a
month or two ago get into the kernel? I applied one of those patches, the
first one out I think, and it made a significant improvement. But will
any of those patches also improve speed over a serial link?

I sent console speedup patches to Linus, and Linus included it into the
2.1 tree, starting at 2.1.5, if I remember correctly.

Now, if only PCMCIA worked on the 2.1 tree, so I could use it all the
time on my laptop.... (I have the unofficial patches which Shawn Jury
did, plus a few more that I added to make it compile cleanly under
2.1.6, but while the modules load, they don't actually detect any PCMCIA
cards. :-< ).
