2013-01-15tty: serial core: decouple pm states from ACPILinus Walleij
The serial core is using power states lifted from ACPI for no good reason. Remove this reference from the documentation and alter all users to use an enum specific to the serial core instead, and define it in <linux/serial_core.h>.

2012-08-16firmware: remove computone driver firmware and documentationTim Gardner
The only Computone support left in the kernel is in drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_pci.c. CONFIG_COMPUTONE is no longer a valid option. Therefore, remove firmware, documentation, and the last vestiges of this driver.

2012-05-17serial: delete the MCA specific 8250 support.Paul Gortmaker
The support for CONFIG_MCA is being removed, since the 20 year old hardware simply isn't capable of meeting today's software demands on CPU and memory resources. This commit removes the MCA specific 8250 UART code.

Usage of /etc/modprobe.conf file was deprecated by module-init-tools and is no longer parsed by new kmod tool. References to this file are replaced in Documentation, comments and Kconfig according to the context. There are also some references to the old /etc/modules.conf from 2.4 kernels that are being removed.

2011-11-15RS485: fix inconsistencies in the meaning of some variablesClaudio Scordino
The crisv10.c and the atmel_serial.c serial drivers intepret the fields of the serial_rs485 structure in a different way. In particular, crisv10.c uses SER_RS485_RTS_AFTER_SEND and SER_RS485_RTS_ON_SEND for the voltage of the RTS pin; atmel_serial.c, instead, uses these values to know if a delay must be set before and after sending. This patch makes the usage of these variables consistent across all drivers and fixes the Documentation as well. From now on, SER_RS485_RTS_AFTER_SEND and SER_RS485_RTS_ON_SEND will be used to set the voltage of the RTS pin (as in the crisv10.c driver); the delay will be understood by looking only at the value of delay_rts_before_send and delay_rts_after_send.

2010-08-04Documentation: update broken web addresses.Justin P. Mattock
Below you will find an updated version from the original series bunching all patches into one big patch updating broken web addresses that are located in Documentation/* Some of the addresses date as far far back as 1995 etc... so searching became a bit difficult, the best way to deal with these is to use web.archive.org to locate these addresses that are outdated. Now there are also some addresses pointing to .spec files some are located, but some(after searching on the companies site)where still no where to be found. In this case I just changed the address to the company site this way the users can contact the company and they can locate them for the users. Signed-off-by: Justin P.

2008-07-20Subject: [PATCH 1/2] serial: Add flush_buffer() operation to uart_opsHaavard Skinnemoen
Serial drivers using DMA (like the atmel_serial driver) tend to get very confused when the xmit buffer is flushed and nobody told them. They also tend to spew a lot of garbage since the DMA engine keeps running after the buffer is flushed and possibly refilled with unrelated data. This patch adds a new flush_buffer operation to the uart_ops struct, along with a call to it from uart_flush_buffer() right after the xmit buffer has been cleared. The driver can implement this in order to syncronize its internal DMA state with the xmit buffer when the buffer is flushed.

2005-08-31[SERIAL] Clean up and fix tty transmission start/stopingRussell King
The start_tx and stop_tx methods were passed a flag to indicate whether the start/stop was from the tty start/stop callbacks, and some drivers used this flag to decide whether to ask the UART to immediately stop transmission (where the UART supports such a feature.) There are other cases when we wish this to occur - when CTS is lowered, or if we change from soft to hard flow control and CTS is inactive. In these cases, this flag was false, and we would allow the transmitter to drain before stopping. There is really only one case where we want to let the transmitter drain before disabling, and that's when we run out of characters to send. Hence, re-jig the start_tx and stop_tx methods to eliminate this flag, and introduce new functions for the special "disable and allow transmitter to drain" case.

2005-06-29[PATCH] Serial: Adjust serial lockingRussell King

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
