Subject[patch 38/46] USB: cdc-acm.c: fix recursive lock in acm_start_wb error path
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Brandon Philips <brandon@ifup.org>

commit ad0b65efd12d020b046cde8d6f474e37bb98dd73 upstream.

Fixes an obvious bug in cdc-acm by avoiding a recursive lock on
acm_start_wb()'s error path. Should apply towards 2.6.27 stable and
2.6.28.

=============================================
[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.27-2-pae #109
---------------------------------------------
python/31449 is trying to acquire lock:
(&acm->write_lock){++..}, at: [<f89a0348>] acm_start_wb+0x5c/0x7b [cdc_acm]
but task is already holding lock:
(&acm->write_lock){++..}, at: [<f89a04fb>] acm_tty_write+0xe1/0x167 [cdc_acm]
other info that might help us debug this:
2 locks held by python/31449:
#0: (&tty->atomic_write_lock){--..}, at: [<c0260fae>] tty_write_lock+0x14/0x3b
#1: (&acm->write_lock){++..}, at: [<f89a04fb>] acm_tty_write+0xe1/0x167 [cdc_acm]
