 * The trace sink uses the Linux line discipline framework to receive
 * trace data coming from the PTI source line discipline driver
 * to a user-desired tty port, like USB.
 * This is to provide a way to extract modem trace data on
 * devices that do not have a PTI HW module, or just need modem
 * trace data to come out of a different HW output port.
 * This is part of a solution for the P1149.7, compact JTAG, standard.
