Subject: [PATCH v2] tty: Prevent hw state corruption in exclusive mode reopen

Exclusive mode ttys (TTY_EXCLUSIVE) do not allow further reopens;
fail the condition before associating the file pointer and calling
the driver open() method.

Prevents DTR programming when the tty is already in exclusive mode.
