Subject[PATCH v2 2/2] TTY: open/hangup race fixup
Date
Like in the "TTY: don't allow reopen when ldisc is changing" patch,
this one fixes a TTY WARNING as described in the option 1) there:
1) __tty_hangup from tty_ldisc_hangup to tty_ldisc_enable. During this
section tty_lock is held. However tty_lock is temporarily dropped in
the middle of the function by tty_ldisc_hangup.

The fix is to introduce a new flag which we set during the unlocked
window and check it in tty_reopen too. The flag is TTY_HUPPING and is
cleared after TTY_HUPPED is set.

While at it, remove duplicate TTY_HUPPED set_bit. The one after
calling ops->hangup seems to be more correct. But anyway, we hold
tty_lock, so there should be no difference.

Also document the function it does that kind of crap.

Nicely reproducible with two forked children:
static void do_work(const char *tty)
{
if (signal(SIGHUP, SIG_IGN) == SIG_ERR) exit(1);
setsid();
while (1) {
int fd = open(tty, O_RDWR|O_NOCTTY);
if (fd < 0) continue;
if (ioctl(fd, TIOCSCTTY)) continue;
if (vhangup()) continue;
close(fd);
}
exit(0);
}

I don't see a better way how to fix it, so I promoted the
proof-of-concept to a real patch.
