Ok. Not that it makes the patch nicer, but hey.

This is basically a fallback; this is the old behaviour, which still
might be called for when coming across a tty which just has a stub
for the ->device callback.
It's not that the '->device' callback is used that frequently, so I
wouldn't be surprised here.

Meanwhile I've sent a new patch, reviews are welcome there.
