Great, thanks!

There are several other OMAP3 platforms (n900, Beagle, etc.) where the
UART console is also UART2, so console ordering is not the problem.

The fact that that pr_warning is making it to the console suggests that
the console is not locked. In the idle path, we take the console lock
(using console_trylock(), just above the code you showed above.)

But during suspend, there was an assumption (by me[2]) that the console
would always be locked in the suspend path. During no_console_suspend,
it appears that is not the case.

Can you try the patch below[1] to see if that fixes your problem? I
think it should.

Subject: [PATCH] OMAP3: PM: fix UART handling when using no_console_suspend

During the idle/suspend path, we expect the console lock to be held so
that no console output is done during/after the UARTs are idled.

However, when using the no_console_suspend argument on the
command-line, the console driver does not take the console lock. This
allows the possibility of console activity after UARTs have been

To fix, update the current is_suspending() to also check the
console_suspend_enabled flag.

NOTE: this is short-term workaround until the OMAP serial driver
is fully converted to use runtime PM.

OMAP2+: PM/serial: fix console semaphore acquire during suspend

commit 0d8e2d0dad98a693bad88aea6876ac8b94ad95c6 (OMAP2+: PM/serial:
hold console semaphore while OMAP UARTs are disabled) added use of the
console semaphore to protect UARTs from being accessed after disabled
during idle, but this causes problems in suspend.

During suspend, the console semaphore is acquired by the console
suspend method (console_suspend()) so the try_acquire_console_sem()
will always fail and suspend will be aborted.

To fix, introduce a check so the console semaphore is only attempted
during idle, and not during suspend. Also use the same check so that
the console semaphore is not prematurely released during resume.

Thanks to Paul Walmsley for suggesting adding the same check during
