tty: Correct tty buffer flush.
The root of problem is carelessly zeroing pointer(in function __tty_buffer_flush()), when another thread can use it. It can be cause of "NULL pointer dereference". Main idea of the patch, this is never free last (struct tty_buffer) in the active buffer. Only flush the data for ldisc(buf->head->read = buf->head->commit). At that moment driver can collect(write) data in buffer without conflict. It is repeat behavior of flush_to_ldisc(), only without feeding data to ldisc. Also revert: commit c56a00a165712fd73081f40044b1e64407bb1875 tty: hold lock across tty buffer finding and buffer filling In order to delete the unneeded locks any more.
