I don't think this is a difficult bug. Why not to fix?

Subject: [PATCH] tty: Don't call panic() at tty_ldisc_init()

syzbot is reporting kernel panic [1] triggered by memory allocation failure
at tty_ldisc_get() from tty_ldisc_init(). But since both tty_ldisc_get()
and caller of tty_ldisc_init() can cleanly handle errors, tty_ldisc_init()
does not need to call panic() when tty_ldisc_get() failed.
