tty: Fix termios tty window resize race with pty/tty pair
Kanru Chen posted a patch versus the old code which deals with the case where you resize the pty side of a pty/tty pair. In that situation the termios data is updated for both pty and tty but the locks are not held for the right side. This implements the fix differently against the updated tty code. Patch by self but the hard bit (noticing and fixing the bug) is thanks to Kanru Chen. Signed-off-by: Alan Cox <alan@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
