  Fix locking race in ttymodem(). The locking of the proctree happens too late
  and opens a small race window before tp->t_session->s_leader is accessed. In case
  tp->t_session has just been set to NULL elsewhere, we get a panic().
  This fix is a bandaid until someone else fixes the whole locking in the tty subsystem.
  Definitly more work needs to be done.
