> Objet: Bug#695873: memtest86+: Serial console does not work
I'd be happy to make an NMU to fix this, since:
* there is a patch
* the patch was tested by 4 people and it seems to work
* the patch looks trivial
* the patch has been merged in Fedora 
I've emailed the maintainer directly to ask him if it would be OK with
him for me to NMU this.
I have also confirmed the patch to fix serial console that was sent to
#695873 works. I was applying it to 5.01-3, building on buster,
installed and booted fine. Please apply.
Attached patch should fix it.
