[PATCH] remove active field from tty buffer structure



Remove 'active' field from tty buffer structure.  This was added in 2.6.16
as part of a patch to make the new tty buffering SMP safe.  This field is
unnecessary with the more intelligently written flush_to_ldisc that adds
receive_room handling.

Removing this field reverts to simpler logic where the tail buffer is
always the 'active' buffer, which should not be freed by flush_to_ldisc.
(active == buffer being filled with new data)

The result is simpler, smaller, and faster tty buffer code.
