Subject[PATCH 1/3] tty: close race between device register and open
Date
The tty class device is currently not registered until after the
character device has been registered thereby leaving a small window
were a racing open could end up with a NULL tty->dev pointer due to the
class-device lookup failing in alloc_tty_struct.

Close this race by registering the class device before the character
device while making sure to defer the user-space uevent notification
until after the character device has been registered.

Note that some tty drivers expect a valid tty->dev and would misbehave
or crash otherwise. Some line disciplines also currently dereference the
class device unconditionally despite the fact that not every tty is
guaranteed to have one (Unix98 pty), but this is being fixed separately.
