No I didn't see his original message just the patch - his original is a
fixed bug.

Sorry I'd been looking at the other side stuff with ppp which is a
sleeping v bh issue and misinterpreted Ralf's post.

In fact Ralf's fix isn't needed. The incorrect uses of tty->low_latency
all got killed and the pty code got rewritten which was the other case
that could occur.
