What if we add a driver that uses the minor number to traverse the
ttylist to locate an instance and redirects to that driver?  That
way you can create a set of `/dev/tty??' and `/dev/dty??' and not
have to mess with a different set of names for each serial controller.
(Yes, there needs to be code to skip over pty instances, but that
should be simple.)
