Description of problem:

Calling `systemctl edit some.service`, after upgrading systemd on my fedora-22 droplet to release `23.fc22`` will result in the following error message:

Failed to execute vim: Bad address
editor failed with error code 1.

`strace systemctl edit some.service | grep vim` gives the following hint:

ioctl(1, TCGETS, 0x7ffebaecd410)        = -1 ENOTTY (Inappropriate ioctl for device)
writev(2, [{"Cannot edit units if not on a tt"..., 33}, {"\n", 1}], 2Cannot edit units if not on a tty
) = 34

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. systemctl edit some.service

Actual results:

Expected results:
