Bug#480195: linux-image-2.6: Please include the io_ti module in the debian kernel
 
Package: linux-image-2.6
Severity: wishlist

Please include the io_ti module (drivers/usb/serial), .config
symbol name CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_EDGEPORT_TI in the default Debian
kernel. It's part of the stock linux.org kernel.

I've an Edgeport/4 (4 port) and an Edgeport/416 (16 port)
serial RS-232 to USB serial converter. I use them to
to access machine consoles attached to a serial port.
Very handy to have remote console access, logging, boot
monitoring, etc. It's annoying to have to rebuild
a custom kernel to keep up with security patches,
something that's necessary on a machine with access
to so many consoles.

Thank you.

Note, this bug report generated from a machine running
a custom kernel. The rest of the machine runs
etchnhalf.

For the record there's a regression in this driver for 2.6.24.
The Edgeport/4 does not work. The Edgeport/416 does.
I don't know about other devices. Regression confirmed fixed
2.6.25.1.
