Subject[PATCH v3 03/23] n_tty: Don't flush buffer when closing ldisc
Date
A buffer flush is both undesirable and unnecessary when the ldisc
is closing. A buffer flush performs the following:
1. resets ldisc data fields to their initial state
2. resets tty->receive_room to indicate more data can be sent
3. schedules buffer work to receive more data
4. signals a buffer flush has happened to linked pty in packet mode

Since the ldisc has been halted and the tty may soon be destructed,
buffer work must not be scheduled as that work might access
an invalid tty and ldisc state. Also, the ldisc read buffer is about
to be freed, so that's pointless.

Resetting the ldisc data fields is pointless as well since that
structure is about to be freed.

Resetting tty->receive_room is unnecessary, as it will be properly
reset if a new ldisc is reopened. Besides, resetting the original
receive_room value would be wrong since the read buffer will be
gone.

Since the packet mode flush is observable from userspace, this
behavior has been preserved.

The test jig originally authored by Ilya Zykov <ilya@ilyx.ru> and
signed off by him is included below. The test jig prompts the
following warnings which this patch fixes.
