Subject: Kernel patch - VT100 response for \033[c
Organization: The Internet
Date: Sat, 23 May 1992 02:41:01 GMT

	The console.c in the kernel currently responds with the vt100 sequence
("\033[1;2c") whenever the escape sequence \033Z is received.  It turns out
that many DEC terminals also respond in the same way when the sequence \033[c
sequence is received.  The enclosed patch adds this functionality. 
Interestingly enough, console.c mentions this secondary escape sequence where
REPORT is defined, however this was never implemented.
