    Which means the hangup path should be doing a cancel_delayed_work() in
    the case where its not resetting the termios as well and since it isn't
    you can't actually (fingers crossed) make the problem worse, its merely as
    broken as before.

    The ldisc re-init via SETD should be fine as it locks versus hangup
    anyway and always has to.
