A New TTY Maintainer for Linux

After the recent orphaning of the Linux TTY code there was speculation about who, if anyone, would be mad enough to take it up next. Well just merged in Linus’s git repository is the answer:

commit 57d7f282271a83fe4ca4bd15eee79be577210210
Author: Greg Kroah-Hartman 
Date:   Fri Jul 31 21:28:16 2009 -0700

    TTY: Maintainer change

    Clearly, I am a glutton for punishment.  I'll see if I can see Alan's
    changes through to the end, otherwise I'll be fending off a lot of bug
    reports for usb-serial devices.

    Cc: Alan Cox 
    Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman 
    Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds 

So the self-described “Maintainer of Crap” has added some more dodgy code to his collection.. 😉

So a big round of applause to Alan Cox for starting this dirty nasty work off and another big vote of thanks to Greg for picking it up. A raspberry to Linus for annoying Alan enough to make him give up on a really really tough job. 🙁
