Subject[PATCH V37 18/29] Lock down TIOCSSERIAL
From
From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

Lock down TIOCSSERIAL as that can be used to change the ioport and irq
settings on a serial port. This only appears to be an issue for the serial
drivers that use the core serial code. All other drivers seem to either
ignore attempts to change port/irq or give an error.
