Subject: [PATCH v2] drivers: tty: Merge alloc_tty_struct and initialize_tty_struct

The two functions alloc_tty_struct and initialize_tty_struct are
always called together. Merge them into alloc_tty_struct, updating its
prototype and the only two callers of these functions.

Signed-off-by: Rasmus Villemoes <linux@...musvillemoes.dk>

I hope this is sufficient. Thanks, Dan and Julia!

v2: Don't cause NULL pointer dereference or use-after-free on error
path. Just give module_put the same argument as was given to
try_module_get.
