Subjectpossible regression with pty.c commit
Hello,
commit d945cb9cce20ac7143c2de8d88b187f62db99bdc ("pty: Rework the pty layer to use the normal buffering logic")
seems to brake kdesu.

(quote: "Because some su implementations (i.e. the one from Red HatВ®) don't want to
read the password from stdin, KDE su creates a pty/tty pair and
executes su with it's standard filedescriptors connected to the tty.")

Revert "pty: Rework the pty layer to use the normal buffering logic"
(commit d945cb9cce20ac7143c2de8d88b187f62db99bdc) makes kdesu work again.

strace /usr/bin/kdesu -u root -c top:
//tons of kde stuff were cut

As for "bug 13522: BUG: scheduling while atomic" - I'll test it.
