No, I discovered that TIOCSERGSTRUCT will return it, so I don't need to
add the other ioctl. Of course, if someone messes with the structure and
moves things around any existing binary will need recompiling; but I
don't see this as a user facility, more of an admin one, so that's ok.

PS, we've had all this correspondence, and I've yet to see any of it
in linux.dev.kernel, in fact the kernel reflector has gone ominously
quiet..
