This similar condition has existed for a long time, tty_unlock(tty) must be called in
some other functions who call tty_init_dev, since tty_init_dev hold tty_lock, and does
not release it

so I think it is user responsibility to fully understand tty_init_dev; and I can add some 
comments for tty_init_dev if this patch can be acceptable;


or a workaround like below:

thanks
