Subject[PATCH] tty/serial: atmel: fix race condition (TX+DMA)
Date
If uart_flush_buffer() is called between atmel_tx_dma() and
atmel_complete_tx_dma(), the circular buffer has been cleared, but not
atmel_port->tx_len.
That leads to a circular buffer overflow (dumping (UART_XMIT_SIZE -
atmel_port->tx_len) bytes).

Cc: stable <stable@vger.kernel.org> # 3.12+
---
NB: this will apply on kernels 4.3+, for kernels before 4.3, the code
will be:
sg_dma_len(&atmel_port->sg_tx) = 0;
