    You did.
    Then Ted tided it up
    Then Bill added hacks to "fix" up the locking

    The real fix is shooting the flip buffers, at that point a lot of the
    locking goes away (because the tty owns everything relevant). I just
    don't have time to do major kernel hacking and finish the MBA thesis at
    the same time.

    Sorry yes I know how n_tty works, and no I'm not going to fix it
