Yes, probably. I did have a bad feeling about the locking, but it
seemed to behave well during testing. Wonder why I didn't see this.

So what's happening is that tty_open() holds big_tty_mutex while
calling acm_tty_open which takes open_lock, and acm_tty_close holds
open_lock while calling tty_port_close_start which takes

Not sure how to solve this. Not taking the lock before calling
tty_port_close_start means the tty_port may get freed before it
