Subject[patch 12/35] char: moxa, prevent opening unavailable ports
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Dirk Eibach <eibach@gdsys.de>

commit a90b037583d5f1ae3e54e9c687c79df82d1d34a4 upstream.

In moxa.c there are 32 minor numbers reserved for each device. The number
of ports actually available per device is stored in
moxa_board_conf->numPorts. This number is not considered in moxa_open().
Opening a port that is not available results in a kernel oops. This patch
adds a test to moxa_open() that prevents opening unavailable ports.
