pty(4) does not document the TIOCPKT mode control bit TIOCPKT_IOCTL.
Look in sys/kern/tty_pty.c and look in pty(4). Notice that
TIOCPKT_IOCTL exists but is not documented.
Someone that knows a bit about it should document it. :)
It would be nice to know how reliably it exists too. Checking OSF/1
and Solaris 5.5 man pages, they deny its existence too. Who knows
about this, please tell me? :)
