Not architecture-specific, but I did find by some grepping that I
missed one line discipline driver: the Siemens R3964.

The reason I missed that is because it's been marked BROKEN in the
Kconfig for almost two years, so it didn't show up in my allmodconfig
coverage.

But the fact that I found it makes me a bit happier about my patch
actually covering all the cases.

My grep exercise failed on the bluetooth hci_ldisc.c pattern, which I
feel is because the bluetooth code used the wrong pattern to
initialize the 'struct tty_ldisc_ops', so I fixed that up too.

So here's a slightly updated version of that patch, but apart from
slightly better coverage - even if it's a driver that is disabled
anyway - I'd like to point out that all my previous caveats still
apply.
