Revert "tty: don't panic on OOM in tty_set_ldisc()" (2017-04-14 10:59:56 +0200)

TTY fix for 4.11-rc7

Here is a single tty core revert for a patch that was reported to cause
problems. The original issue is one that we have lived with for
decades, so trying to scramble to fix the fix in time for 4.11-final
does not make sense due to the fragility of the tty ldisc layer. Just
reverting it makes sense for now.
