If you want to know if the tty has been closed for further I/O then you
can use test_bit(TTY_IO_ERROR, &tty->flags). This gets set at the right
points on close/hangup/etc.

PPP doesn't route characters via the tty interface while you seem to do
so for the AT emulation so you do need it. In the hangup case you want to
return an exception event too: probably you want
for that case.
