The current ttyname does the wrong thing in two cases:

1. If the passed-in link (say /proc/self/fd/0) points to a
device, say /dev/pts/2, in a parent mount namespace, and a
/dev/pts/2 exists (in a different devpts) in the current
namespace, then it returns /dev/pts/2.  But /dev/pts/2 is
NOT the current tty, it is a different file and device.

2. If the passed-in link (say /proc/self/fd/0) points to
a device, say /dev/pts/2, in a parent mount namespace, and
/dev/pts/2 does not exist in the current namespace, it
returns success but an empty name.  As far as I can tell,
there is no reason for it to not return /proc/self/fd/0.
http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/functions/ttyname.html
does not say anything about not returning a link.

should be a period at the end followed by two spaces

you'll need to include sys/sysmacros.h in this file since you're using
major now.

should be "namespace.  */" at the end ;)
