tty: add tty_struct->dev pointer to corresponding device instance
Dmitry Eremin-Solenikov [Mon, 9 Aug 2010 14:22:49 +0000 (18:22 +0400)]
Some device drivers (mostly tty line disciplines) would like to have way
know a struct device instance corresponding to passed tty_struct. Add
a struct device pointer to struct tty_struct and populate it during
initialize_tty_struct().
