commit dd42bf1197144ede075a9d4793123f7689e164bc upstream.

Line discipline drivers may mistakenly misuse ldisc-related fields
when initializing. For example, a failure to initialize tty->receive_room
in the N_GIGASET_M101 line discipline was recently found and fixed [1].
Now, the N_X25 line discipline has been discovered accessing the previous
line discipline's already-freed private data [2].

Harden the ldisc interface against misuse by initializing revelant
tty fields before instancing the new line discipline.
