Side note: I suspect it should be marked for stable, but it's going to
be basically impossible to back-port this any further than 4.7 or
something where we made each pts mount its own proper filesystem. The
code before that was a mess, and this is never going to work right in
old kernels.

Of course, TIOCGPTPEER itself is much more recent than that and was
done in this merge window, so hopefully you haven't backported it and
expect this all to work in some older kernel?
