Subject: [PATCH tty-next 21/22] serial: core: Remove superfluous ldisc flush from uart_close()

The tty_ldisc_flush() after port hardware shutdown is unnecessary;
the ldisc flush was just performed before the hardware shutdown
in tty_port_close_start() and the ldisc will be released when
uart_close() returns (because the last port close implies the
last tty close).
