TTY fix for 4.12-rc4

Here is a single tty core fix for 4.12-rc4.  It reverts a patch that a
lot of people reported as causing lockdep and other warnings.  Right
after I reverted this in my tree, it seems like another "correct" fix
might have shown up, but it's too late in the release cycle to be
messing with tty core locking, so let's just revert this for now to go
back how things always have been and try it again for 4.13.

This has not been in linux-next as I only reverted it a few hours ago.
