Hi Roman,

do we still want to support this IOCTL?  If we want something like this,
a better solution might be to export a sysfs attribute "line", which is
0 (line down) or 1 (line up); then the user can write 0 or 1 to it if they
want to force the line state.



PS: I am looking at your patch now.
