Fix hci_uart_tty_open() to check if tty supports set_termios in addition
to write and error out, if it doesn't.

Why do you think that a tty driver not implementing set_termios() is
Note that tty_set_termios() handles a missing set_termios() callback
just fine without dereferencing a NULL-pointer. >

I know Marcel asked you do implement things like this, but what you're
really doing is to try to uphold the invariant that tty_set_termios()
should never be called for a pty master. The WARN_ON in that function
was put in place to make sure line-disciplines use the correct ioctl
helpers (and the commit I pointed you to earlier in the paragraph you
quote in the commit message broke that invariant).
I'm afraid this is totally obscured by the above change and misleading
