1. Feature Overview:
Feature Id:	[201734]
a. Name of Feature:	TTY terminal server over IUCV (kernel)
b. Feature Description
Implement client & server for a TTY terminal server under z/VM using IUCV as communication vehicle.
   This line item corresponds to the terminal client running on the numerous guests.  The terminal
client is a Linux tty / console driver with a fixed device node.

2. Feature Details:
Sponsor:	zSeries

Arch Specificity: Purely Arch Specific Code
Affects Core Kernel: Yes
Affects Kernel Modules: Yes
Delivery Mechanism: Direct from community
Category:	Kernel
Request Type:	Kernel - Enhancement from IBM
d. Upstream Acceptance:	In Progress
Sponsor Priority	1
f. Severity: High
IBM Confidential:	no
Code Contribution:	IBM code
g. Component Version Target:	2.6.29

3. Business Case
Customer requirement to solve restriction to access to the Linux console for many Linux
administrators concurrently   and they find the z/VM 3270 interface inadequate for the 200+ Linux
admins due to the inability to use common   programs such as vi from this interface.    The customer
has a requirement that the Linux system that needs to have its console accessed, will have its TCPIP
stack shutdown, so the solution can not involve an IP connection to that system IP stack.
