Subject: [PATCH tty-next 05/22] tty: Document locking for tty_port_hangup()

The tty lock is held when the tty driver's hangup() method is called
(from the lone call-site, __tty_hangup()). The call-tree audit [1]
of tty_port_hangup() is a closed graph of the callers of
tty_port_hangup(); ie., all callers originate only from __tty_hangup().

Of these callers, none drop the tty lock prior to calling
tty_port_hangup().
