Summary:  tty over TCP driver

	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

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.)
