Subject: [PATCH] tty: the briq panel isn't a tty, make it use its own locking

From: Alan Cox <alan@...ux.intel.com>

The driver appears to be terminall broken, if nobody is maintaining it then
perhaps it should go into staging and the out-tray.

(Fixed bug noted by Jiri)

Signed-off-by: Alan Cox <alan@...ux.intel.com>
