tty: do not set TTY_IO_ERROR flag if console port

commit 2a48602615e0a2f563549c7d5c8d507f904cf96e upstream.

Since Commit 761ed4a9 ('tty: serial_core: convert uart_close to use
tty_port_close') and Commit 4dda864d ('tty: serial_core: Fix serial
console crash on port shutdown), a serial port which is used as
console can be stuck when logging out if there is a remained process.
After logged out, agetty will try to grab the serial port but it will
be failed because the previous process did not release the port
correctly. To fix this, TTY_IO_ERROR bit should not be enabled of
tty_port_close if the port is console port.

Reproduce step:
- Run background processes from serial console
$ while true; do sleep 10; done &

- Log out
$ logout
-> Stuck

- Read journal log by journalctl | tail
