Hi all,
	this is my first post to the list, so please be kind. I am working on the 
nozomi (UMTS modem) driver, which is not in the main kernel.
I have a issue with the tty code. Currently the driver defines a 'put_char' 
tty function but it is empty, except for a debug message. Now I know that 
this means that the tty layer will use it to write single chars and so data 
will be lost. But if I comment out the line that tells the tty layer that 
it's implemented, I end up with a BUG - spinlock recursion. Can anybody tell 
me how to interpret the output?

Thanks and please CC as I'm not subscribed to the list

Andrew
