Bug#598310: linux-2.6: Please enable CONFIG_PPS_CLIENT_LDISC

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.36~rc5-1~experimental.1
Severity: wishlist

I'm using this system as a stratum-1 NTP server, synced to a PPS-enabled
GPS. However, the Debian-provided kernels don't have the PPS line
discipline enabled, which prevents the PPS API from seeing the PPS
events. Please enable this config option (which was first added in
2.6.34-rc2), which enables processing PPS events from the DCD line of
serial ports. This option only depends on the CONFIG_PPS option, which
is enabled in the global config file.
