You reported that legacy pty support is turned off in the new kernel.
That is one change from the old setup. And someone reported that his
xterm works fine with non-legacy pty, but yours apparently does not.
Why don't you check if you have a working non-legacy pty system or

$ stat /dev/ptmx
$ mountpoint /dev/pts

mountpoint says /dev/pts is not a mount point

(I don't know where to go from here)
