For a long time, I have been using this single name as my signature in
my company, ex-company, and open communities.
If you don't mind, I want to use this single name in this life.

Same comment. I hope you don't mind this.

Right. Unfortunately I am not sure if this is fixed in latest kernel
with other newly introduced routines.
But, logically it seems the latest kernel also has the same chance to
meet this issue by reading the code.
And, frankly I thought with your broad insight about tty/pty this
could be easily adopted or abandoned.
If not, then probably need more efforts to reproduce the same issue on
latest kernel by implementing pty test code.
Thanks.
