drivers/tty: require read access for controlling terminal
This is mostly a hardening fix, given that write-only access to other users' ttys is usually only given through setgid tty executables. Signed-off-by: Jann Horn <jann@thejh.net> Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
