Subject: [PATCH v9 4/4] console: Make persistent scrollback a boot parameter
Date: Tue, 10 Jan 2017 22:28:38 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20170110212838.16175-5-manuel.schoelling@gmx.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170110212838.16175-1-manuel.schoelling@gmx.de>
In-Reply-To: <4640722.jsFVORW8WM@amdc3058>

The impact of the persistent scrollback feature on the code size is
rather small, so the config option is removed. The feature stays
disabled by default and can be enabled by using the boot command line
parameter 'vgacon.scrollback_persistent=1' or by setting
VGACON_SOFT_SCROLLBACK_PERSISTENT_ENABLE_BY_DEFAULT=y.
