    tty: Added a CONFIG_TTY option to allow removal of TTY · 4f73bc4d
    Joe Millenbach authored
    The option allows you to remove TTY and compile without errors. This
    saves space on systems that won't support TTY interfaces anyway.
    bloat-o-meter output is below.
    
    The bulk of this patch consists of Kconfig changes adding "depends on
    TTY" to various serial devices and similar drivers that require the TTY
    layer.  Ideally, these dependencies would occur on a common intermediate
    symbol such as SERIO, but most drivers "select SERIO" rather than
    "depends on SERIO", and "select" does not respect dependencies.
    
    bloat-o-meter output comparing our previous minimal to new minimal by
    removing TTY.  The list is filtered to not show removed entries with awk
    '$3 != "-"' as the list was very long.
