Ircomm in 2.6.0-test3 can just set the owner field in the tty structure
like other drivers, and not mess with MOD_INC/MOD_DEC.


        You missed a couple of comments. I sent the more complete
version of the exact same patch a few weeks ago to Jeff Garzik, you
may want to check with Jeff what the status on this.
        Of course, I would prefer the "more complete" version to go
in.

        By the way, because of Jeff's turnaround, we are going to have
this problem a lot. All my pending IrDA patches are listed on my web
page, you may want to check it :


Yes, I have "ircomm module fix" and "NSC '39x fixes" queued, and going to Linus today with some more net driver stuff.

        Jeff
