So one thing I'm worried about is how other apps behave if the tty is locked.
Do they error out if they can't make the changes they want? Is boot up smooth?
I also wonder how this works on serial consoles.

Left over debug spew? Can't happen with this patch right?

This is a bit ugly. I guess at a minimum we should hide this behind
three preprocessor defines... e.g.
and have a comment that says "These are documented in the cfmakeraw man page"
Another idea would be to try to infer the mask based on what bits
cfmakeraw changes versus what the bits were originally.
/* We want all the bits that cfmakeraw sets, set in our mask */
input_mask = term_attributes.c_iflag;
/* We also want all the bits that cfmakeraw clears, set in our mask */
input_mask |= (original_term_attributes.c_iflag ^ term_attributes.c_iflag);
Not sure if that logic is right. Or maybe we should just lock everything?
