    tty_lock: Localise the lock

    In each remaining case the tty_lock is associated with a specific tty. This
    means we can now lock on a per tty basis. We do need tty_lock_pair() for
    the pty case. Uglier but still a step in the right direction.

    [fixed up calls in 3 missing drivers - gregkh]
