          That one has been dead for some time now. The bus1 was its successor as far as I'm aware, but I don't know anything about it nowadays.

            i havent seen any new buses in the kernels but am still stuck on 4.6.4 because of nvidia. Why are we killing the kernel console? I loved it. Not sure how but the TTYs have disappeared on me and i have like no consoles now and have to try to fix things with SSH. What a pain in the ass..

                  As for the disappearance of tty's, I suppose you should blame nvidia and their closed source kernel module which is responsible for handling/displaying the console.
