Subjectmutex_lock_slowpath warning using mxser tty driver (input/output error)
Hi all,

I have upgraded one of my automated test setups from 2.6.27 to 2.6.29. I
now have issues with using a Moxa multiport serial device, where I had
none before :-)

> MOXA Smartio/Industio family driver version 2.0.4
> mxser 0000:03:02.0: found MOXA C168H/PCI series board (BusNo=3,
> mxser 0000:03:02.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
> mxser: max. baud rate = 921600 bps

When I cat /dev/setup3 (which is a symlink to /dev/ttyMI3), which is
connected to a device that outputs data (tried it with one @ 115200bps
and one @ 9600bps), I get the following kernel trace:

After I break the cat, subsequent cat's result in:

cat /dev/setup3
cat: /dev/setup3: Input/output error

I'm not a kernel expert, so if you have any pointers or ways to provide
more information, don't hesitate to ask.
