get_node() cleanup in devpts

This patchset adds inode/tty parameter to devpts interfaces and uses
this new parameter to remove the unnecessary get_node() calls in devpts
(as pointed out by Peter Anvin).

Alan, if these are getting in your way, I can hold off for now, but
just wanted some quick comments from you on patch 1 and from Peter
on get_node() cleanup.

Subject: [RFC][PATCH 1/5]: Move tty lookup/reopen to caller

Move tty_driver_lookup_tty() and tty_reopen() from tty_init_dev()
into tty_open() (one of the two callers of tty_init_dev()).  These
calls are not really required in ptmx_open(), the other caller,
since ptmx_open() would be setting up a new tty.

Changelog[v2]:
	- remove the lookup and reopen calls from ptmx_open
	- merge with recent changes to ttydev tree
