Well, the problem with the current approach is that if you remove
"device pty" from your kernel config, it won't work. With MPSAFE TTY we
switched to Unix98-style pseudo-terminals, so the preferred mechanism is
to call posix_openpt() (or open /dev/ptmx) and use ptsname() to
determine which character device to use.

I won't change anything now, but will keep my patch at the before
mentioned URL.
