If they have two different ttys open then yes at least as far as Linux is
concerned. I don't know how glibc handles it as it can do signal groups
and the like and delivery of signals to process not threads etc.

You can see parity anyway. In PARMRK mode you get \377 \0 [whatever] for
parity/break etc but \377 is also doubled for a real one - ie \377 \377
