/*
 * This structure defines the interface between the tty line discipline
 * implementation and the tty routines.  The following routines can be
 * defined; unless noted otherwise, they are optional, and can be
 * filled in with a null pointer.
 *
 * int	(*open)(struct tty_struct *);
 *
 * 	This function is called when the line discipline is associated
 * 	with the tty.  The line discipline can use this as an
 * 	opportunity to initialize any state needed by the ldisc routines.
 * 
 * void	(*close)(struct tty_struct *);
 *
 *	This function is called when the line discipline is being
 * 	shutdown, either because the tty is being closed or because
 * 	the tty is being changed to use a new line discipline
 * 
 * void	(*flush_buffer)(struct tty_struct *tty);
 *
 * 	This function instructs the line discipline to clear its
 * 	buffers of any input characters it may have queued to be
 * 	delivered to the user mode process.
 * 
 * ssize_t (*chars_in_buffer)(struct tty_struct *tty);
 *
 * 	This function returns the number of input characters the line
 *	discipline may have queued up to be delivered to the user mode
 *	process.
 * 
 * ssize_t (*read)(struct tty_struct * tty, struct file * file,
 *		   unsigned char * buf, size_t nr);
 *
 * 	This function is called when the user requests to read from
 * 	the tty.  The line discipline will return whatever characters
 * 	it has buffered up for the user.  If this function is not
 * 	defined, the user will receive an EIO error.
 * 
 * ssize_t (*write)(struct tty_struct * tty, struct file * file,
 * 		    const unsigned char * buf, size_t nr);
 *
 * 	This function is called when the user requests to write to the
 * 	tty.  The line discipline will deliver the characters to the
 * 	low-level tty device for transmission, optionally performing
 * 	some processing on the characters first.  If this function is
 * 	not defined, the user will receive an EIO error.
 * 
 * int	(*ioctl)(struct tty_struct * tty, struct file * file,
 * 		 unsigned int cmd, unsigned long arg);
 *
 *	This function is called when the user requests an ioctl which
 * 	is not handled by the tty layer or the low-level tty driver.
 * 	It is intended for ioctls which affect line discpline
 * 	operation.  Note that the search order for ioctls is (1) tty
 * 	layer, (2) tty low-level driver, (3) line discpline.  So a
 * 	low-level driver can "grab" an ioctl request before the line
 * 	discpline has a chance to see it.
 * 
 * void	(*set_termios)(struct tty_struct *tty, struct termios * old);
 *
 * 	This function notifies the line discpline that a change has
 * 	been made to the termios structure.
 * 
 * int	(*poll)(struct tty_struct * tty, struct file * file,
 * 		  poll_table *wait);
 *
 * 	This function is called when a user attempts to select/poll on a
 * 	tty device.  It is solely the responsibility of the line
 * 	discipline to handle poll requests.
 *
 * void	(*receive_buf)(struct tty_struct *, const unsigned char *cp,
 * 		       char *fp, int count);
 *
 * 	This function is called by the low-level tty driver to send
 * 	characters received by the hardware to the line discpline for
 * 	processing.  <cp> is a pointer to the buffer of input
 * 	character received by the device.  <fp> is a pointer to a
 * 	pointer of flag bytes which indicate whether a character was
 * 	received with a parity error, etc.
 * 
 * void	(*write_wakeup)(struct tty_struct *);
 *
 * 	This function is called by the low-level tty driver to signal
 * 	that line discpline should try to send more characters to the
 * 	low-level driver for transmission.  If the line discpline does
 * 	not have any more data to send, it can just return.
 *
 * int (*hangup)(struct tty_struct *)
 *
 *	Called on a hangup. Tells the discipline that it should
 *	cease I/O to the tty driver. Can sleep. The driver should
 *	seek to perform this action quickly but should wait until
 *	any pending driver I/O is completed.
