3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Mike Frysinger <vap...@chromium.org>

commit 65d9982d7e523a1a8e7c9af012da0d166f72fc56 upstream.

ECMA-48 [1] (aka ISO 6429) has defined SGR 21 as "doubly underlined"
since at least March 1984.  The Linux kernel has treated it as SGR 22
"normal intensity" since it was added in Linux-0.96b in June 1992.
Before that, it was simply ignored.  Other terminal emulators have
either ignored it, or treat it as double underline now.  xterm for
example added support in its 304 release (May 2014) [2] where it was
previously ignoring it.

Changing this behavior shouldn't be an issue:
- It isn't a named capability in ncurses's terminfo database, so no
  script is using libtinfo/libcurses to look this up, or using tput
  to query & output the right sequence.
- Any script assuming SGR 21 will reset intensity in all terminals
  already do not work correctly on non-Linux VTs (including running
  under screen/tmux/etc...).
- If someone has written a script that only runs in the Linux VT, and
  they're using SGR 21 (instead of SGR 22), the output should still
  be readable.

imo it's important to change this as the Linux VT's non-conformance
is sometimes used as an argument for other terminal emulators to not
implement SGR 21 at all, or do so incorrectly.
