Subject: [PATCH 4/8] serdev: ttyport: fix NULL-deref on hangup

Make sure to use a properly refcounted tty_struct in write_wake up to
avoid dereferencing a NULL-pointer when a port is being hung up.

Fixes: bed35c6dfa6a ("serdev: add a tty port controller driver")
Cc: stable <stable@...r.kernel.org>     # 4.11
