    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
