[RFC] tty: pty -- Add ability to setup next pty number for ptmx open




When we restore PTY terminals we do iterate over open() calls to reach
the index used at checkpoint time (say application opened a number of
terminals, then closed all other except last one) which of course very
inconvenient.

The problem get more notable in scope of controlling terminal represented
by /dev/tty device: current CRIU restore scheme is lazy, we don't open
files immedeately after the forks but rather defer until the whole
process tree is created, then every process opens own files in async
way and in result /dev/tty is not propagated into children because
it is not yet opened.

Both problems can be solved via criu itself but will require very
much efforts. So I would be very happy if we can open desired PTY
peer with index needed in one call instead. Which would allow us:

 - open a sole control terminal right after the fork and
   propagate it automatically into children

 - drop out our open(/dev/ptmx) sequence to reach index needed,
   improving performance and shrinking code

The API in the patch is trivial -- one have to open(/dev/ptmx)
and automatically get index 0, then simply do
ioctl(fd, TIOCSPTN, index) and next open(/dev/ptmx)
will return pair with point number requested.
