I do think we care, but I don't think anybody in particular feels singled out as a maintainer... > console=lp0 hangs since at least 2.6.18 Ok, that's not exactly new then, which implies that not a *lot* of people even care ;) Do you think you'd be willing to try to figure out when it started? You seem to be the first one to have even noticed. (I tried to google it, and the most recent thing google finds is your report, although I also saw a report of somebody trying it under qemu in July last year and also reported a hang) Looking through the history of the last few years (it in git), I don't see anything even *remotely* suspicious there, so it's probably either (a) really old, and hasn't worked in a loong time and nobody just uses it (b) something really stupid that happened while doing other cleanups (but the changes in the last two years are *literally* just things like removing devfs support) (c) some infrastructure change that subtly broke lpconsole, probably causing an oops during printk, which obviously results in a printk itself, which thus hangs. It would be good to get it fixed, although for obvious reasons it's not a huge priority..
