Subject[patch 1/1] [patch] staging: speakup: fix speakup-r empty line lockup
When cursor is at beginning of an empty or whitespace-only line and
speakup-r typed, kernel locks up. This happens because deadlock of in
input_event function over dev->event_lock, as demonstrated by lockdep
logs. The reason for that is speakup simulates a down arrow - because
cursor is at an empty line - while inside key press notifier handler
which is ultimately triggered from input_event function. The simulated
key press leads to input_event being called again, this time under its
own context. So the spinlock is dev->event_lock is acquired while still
being held.

This patch ensures that key press is not simulated from inside key press
notifier handler. Instead it delegates to cursor_timer. It starts the
timer and passes RA_DOWN_ARROW as argument. When timer handler runs and
sees RA_DOWN_ARROW, it will then call kbd_fakekey2(RA_DOWN_ARROW) which
will correctly simulate the keypress inside timer context.

When not inside key press notifier callback, the behaviour will remain
the same as before this patch.
