    Subject[PATCH 1/1] usb: cdc-acm: Fix acm_tty_hangup() vs. acm_tty_close() race
    There is a race condition involving acm_tty_hangup() and acm_tty_close() where
    hangup() would attempt to access tty->driver_data without proper locking and
    NULL checking after close() has potentially already set it to NULL.
    One possibility to (sporadically) trigger this behavior is to perform a
    suspend/resume cycle with a running WWAN data connection.

    This patch addresses the issue by introducing a NULL check for
    tty->driver_data in acm_tty_hangup() protected by open_mutex and exiting
    gracefully when hangup() is invoked on a device that has already been closed.
