    You'd have to go and check the old code but I believe one side of the BSD
    pair uses pty_ops the other pty_bsd ops, and unix98 uses different ops

    All it does is make sure the right ioctls appear on the right devices.
    Quite why the can't all use one and a simple if in the ioctl handler I'm
    not sure
