    OK, the change of hung_up_tty_ioctl() from locked to unlocked
    is not necessary for this patch. On the surface it seemed a clever
    way of not needing two different functions to do the same simple:

    return cmd == TIOCSPGRP ? -ENOTTY : -EIO;

    which does not need any locking for its own sake. But clearly
    the hangup behavior requires the locked version.

    I'll redo the patch with hung_up_tty_ioctl remaining locked.

    That will separate the compat ioctl stuff from this issue.
