pty: Rework the pty layer to use the normal buffering logic



This fixes the ppp problems and various other issues with call locking
caused by one side of a pty called in one locking context trying to match
another with differing rules on the other side. We also get a big slack
space to work with that means we can bury the flow control deadlock case
for any conceivable real world situation.

* WSH 05/24/97: modified to

* of space available. The buffer is protected by a per-pty
* semaphore that should almost never come under contention.
* (2) avoid redundant copying for cases where count >> receive_room
* N.B. Calls from user space may now return an error code instead of
* a count.

* The pty driver chars_in_buffer() Master/Slave must behave differently:

* some threshold is reached, and then report the count. (Any count >

* the count returned must be 0 if no canonical data is available to be
* read. (The N_TTY ldisc.chars_in_buffer now knows this.)
