SubjectRe: Serial driver - overrun possible to overrun flip buffer? (2.4.0-test7)
   From: Russell King <>

At the marked line (! - line 647), what if flip.count is equal to
TTY_FLIPBUF_SIZE? Surely we're writing to a character outside the
flag_buf_ptr array? If that is the case, should we not move this
like until after the "goto ignore_char"? Also, does it matter that
we don't place a character in the character buffer at the overrun

Yup, that's an obvious bug, thanks for pointing that out.. I'll get a
correction to Linus.
