  Modified files:
    sys/kern             tty.c 
  Rev. 1.274 put the ttyrel() call before the destroy_dev() in the
  ttyfree(), freeing the tty. Since destroy_dev() may call d_purge()
  cdevsw method, that is the ttypurge() for the tty, the code ends up
  accessing freed tty structure.
  Put the ttyrel() after destroy_dev() in the ttyfree. To prevent the
  panic the rev. 1.274 provided fix for, check the TS_GONE in sysctl
  handler and refuse to provide information on such tty.
