Subject[ 058/117] tty: Allow uart_register/unregister/register
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Alan Cox <alan@linux.intel.com>

commit 1e66cded334e6cea596c72f6f650eec351b1e959 upstream.

This is legitimate but because we don't clear the drv->state pointer in the
unregister code causes a bogus BUG().
