Thank you, I will test that.  If I ended up with uplcom5 instead of
ttyU5, that would already be something.

Right now, I increment an internal counter, so the first line discipline
gets the name ldisc0, then ldisc1.

The issue is that this line discipline creates a Lua state and I must be
able to identify the state to load code into it.

Maybe I have to do it the other way round:  Create a (named) Lua state,
load the code into it, and then pass that name somehow down to the
linediscipline.  That would probably mean a new tty(4) ioctl,

Need to test a few scenarios, I think.
