No. That seems correct. Change made. If nothing else it is cheaper
and clearer so even if the other version wasn't wrong it is a good idea.

That change is a revert to the old v4.12 code. So it is definitely
not regression inducing.

Further devpts_pty_new allocates a dentry keeps it in the devpts
filesystem. The dentry is good until devpts_pty_kill where the
dentry is unlinked and killed.

I figure not differences from v4.12 if the logic hasn't changed
seems a good good way to cut down on the search for bugs/regressions.

Correct. That is buggy. Will fix before I resend.
