Subject: [PATCH 01/25] tty: Change return type to void

Many drivers with tty use the tty_stand_install(). But, there is no
need to handle the error, since it always returns 0. So, change the
return type of tty_standard_install() and tty_port_install() to void
type and remove unnecessary exception handling where we use these
