Subject[PATCH 3.18 049/124] tty/serial: atmel: fix race condition (TX+DMA)
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Richard Genoud <richard.genoud@gmail.com>

commit 31ca2c63fdc0aee725cbd4f207c1256f5deaabde upstream.

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).
