I'm afraid this won't help. As this is based on an assumption that
tty->link is NULL [*] and that is not just true.

Greg, please revert commit d3bda5298 completely.

[*] Your dump reveals that the code fetches tty->driver_data (mov
0x428(%rdi),%rbx) and traps at a fetch of inode->i_sbm because inode is
NULL (mov 0x28(%rbx),%rax).

Anyway I'm still interested in the tool you triggered this, because we
will need to get rid of BTM eventually.

thanks,
