Unfortunately, ttyd/termnetd doesn't have any upstream anymore. The
default Debian kernel doesn't set CONFIG_LEGACY_PTYS anymore, and I
only got one private report about it. On the ttyd/termnetd front, I
think it's fair to move on and disable the config option, there doesn't
seem to be a load of users. It will make it more obvious that this
package needs some new upstream to adopt it, or a replacement.
