Then take two prefix letters. This is basically what the digi drivers
This is actually a pretty good suggestion, but I'd go ahead with a
letter then two digits scheme: tty[a-o][0-9][0-9]. If it breaks ps, we
fix ps. Any folks that have dealt with PC Unix's and multiport boards
know probably a few zillion forms for this stuff, and this is of course
I _KNOW_ you can easily run 48 Serial devices on a PC Unix Box, I don't
really see 128 connections as being a problem, in the very near future
either. The current crop of digi C/X drivers supports 512 total serial
devices. I do not see this as completely unrealistic either (as long as
we are not all recompiling LINUX! :) ). Anyway it spreads itself
accross multiple Major numbers.
