[PATCH] remove active field from tty buffer structure
Remove 'active' field from tty buffer structure. This was added in 2.6.16 as part of a patch to make the new tty buffering SMP safe. This field is unnecessary with the more intelligently written flush_to_ldisc that adds receive_room handling. Removing this field reverts to simpler logic where the tail buffer is always the 'active' buffer, which should not be freed by flush_to_ldisc. (active == buffer being filled with new data) The result is simpler, smaller, and faster tty buffer code.
