So tty_kopen_shared() is something you added. Judging from a quick look
it seems you can only attach a trigger to an already open port, but the
trigger will then keep the port open (again, consider modem control,
power).

I'm sorry I don't have time to review this myself, but this probably
needs some more eyes on it before being merged.
