    kernel - More pty fixes
    * Allow the pts to be closed and reopened while the ptc is held open
      (xterm issues a revoke + open).  This fixes xterm.
    * Add a flag to differentiate between a slave not yet initially opened
      and a slave which has been closed, so ptc reads and the kqfilter
      can properly return EOF (tmux).
    * Remove pt_flags2 and fold its flags into pt_flags.
    * Create a shim to track ttyunhold()'s for session releases and release
      the underlying pts (for screen).
