Subject: [PATCH net] drivers/net/wan/x25_asy: Correct the ndo_open and ndo_stop functions

1.
Move the lapb_register/lapb_unregister calls into the ndo_open/ndo_stop
functions in x25_asy_netdev_ops.
This makes the LAPB protocol start/stop when the network interface
starts/stops. When the network interface is down, the LAPB protocol
shouldn't be running and the LAPB module shoudn't be generating control
frames.

2.
Move netif_start_queue/netif_stop_queue into the ndo_open/ndo_stop
functions in x25_asy_netdev_ops.
This makes the TX queue start/stop when the network interface
starts/stops.

3.
The x25_asy_close function was originally used as the ndo_stop function.
However, I think when stopping the interface we shouldn't do the things
that this function does (except netif_stop_queue).
 1) We shouldn't clear TTY_DO_WRITE_WAKEUP and set sl->xleft to 0,
    because this may cause the transmission of the last frame before
    stopping to be incomplete.
 2) We shouldn't set sl->rcount to 0,
    because if we stop the interface and quickly start it again,
    the first frame we receive could be incomplete.
So I moved it to make it be called in x25_asy_close_tty (when closing
the TTY line discipline) instead. (This also makes the code look better
because x25_asy_open is called in x25_asy_open_tty.)
