SubjectRe: [PATCH 13/24] TTY: um/line, use tty from tty_port

Hi, I don't think they depend on any changes.

This was not intended to fix anything particular. If it does, it is a
pure coincidence... These patches are a minimalistic subset to ensure
every driver has its own tty_port for each tty. We will need this
pairing later.

So the switch of the driver to the new tty port API, as suggested by
Alan, is still needed. I might do that later if I learn how to make
UML work. (The conversion is by definition invasive and needs runtime
testing.)
