Subject[PATCH 1/1] TTY: hvc, fix TTY refcounting
Date
A -next commit "TTY: HVC, use tty from tty_port" switched the driver
to use tty_port helper for tty refcounting. But it omitted to remove
manual tty refcounting from open, close and hangup. So now we are
getting random crashes caused by use-after-free:
Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0xc0000003f9d550
Faulting instruction address: 0xc0000000001b7f40
Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]

Fix that by complete removal of tty_kref_get/put in open/close/hangup
paths.
