commit b0e6bdde87725a5d46273ecc4bd00c54bd675848

pty: ensure writes hit the reader before close

This is elegant in all the wrong ways. Put the pty into low latency mode (which
we can do as we always post bytes from user context). The tty_flip_buffer_push
then always calls into the ldisc which means we clear the ldisc buffer before
we set the TTY_OTHER_CLOSED flag.

Means pty has subtle knowledge of tty internals we really don't want it to, but
it fixes the problem for the moment.
