I applied the patch to our mostly-5.3 tree (with some modifiecations to
ttyinfo() to get it to apply).

It boots and passed the test that provoked the issue before.  The crash
only showed up on one nightly testrun out of dozens though, so I'm not
certain it fixes the underlying issue.

I'll let you know if anything else turns up.
