/*
The Siemens R3964 line discipline code in drivers/tty/n_r3964.c has a few races
around its ioctl handler; for example, the handler for R3964_ENABLE_SIGNALS
just allocates and deletes elements in a linked list with zero locking.
This code is reachable by an unprivileged user if the line discipline is enabled
in the kernel config; Ubuntu 18.04, for example, ships this line discipline as a
module.

Proof of concept:
