Subject: [PATCH 1/1] driver/tty: Fix a warning in check_tty_count

When there are to many open/close on a tty device in the same time,
there may be a warning like:
  Warning: dev (ttyS0) tty->count(4) != #fd's(3) in tty_release_dev

That's because tty->count and files in tty->tty_files are not synchronized
in time.
So I add a lock to avoid this.
