Subject[RFC][PATCH] tty: tty refcounting
From
Date

Rename get_current_tty() to current_tty(), because we're introducing a new
get_current_tty() that actually gets a refcount.

Since tty lifetime is governed by its open file handles, expose an external
ref counting API based on this. It tries to grab an extra reference on one
of the tty's supporting files thereby keeping it from closing and taking
the tty with it.
