tty: N_TTY SIGIO only works for read
Thomas Pfaff [Fri, 2 Jan 2009 13:47:13 +0000 (13:47 +0000)]
The N_TTY ldisc layer does not send SIGIO POLL_OUTs correctly when output is
possible due to flawed handling of the TTY_DO_WRITE_WAKEUP bit. It will
either send no SIGIOs at all or on every tty wakeup.

The fix is to set the bit when the tty driver write would block and test
and clear it on write wakeup.

[Merged with existing N_TTY patches and a small buglet fixed -- Alan]
