Summary:  tty over TCP driver

Description:
	A company has devices that are exposed over TCP to a local
	machine as a "normal" tty serial port.  A driver needs to be
	written for Linux to expose this kind of functionality to the
	user so that standard serial programs can be used to control the
	device.

Estimated skills needed:
	tty layer experience
	TCP from within the kernel experience
	This is not a good "first driver" type project, but should not
	be that complex (with the exception of trying to understand the
	tty layer, a currently moving target.)
