Subject[PATCH 1/1] Char: moxa, prevent opening unavailable ports
Date
From: Dirk Eibach <eibach@gdsys.de>

In moxa.c there are 32 minor numbers reserved for each device. The
number of ports actually available per device is stored in
moxa_board_conf->numPorts. This number is not considered in moxa_open().
Opening a port that is not available results in a kernel oops.
This patch adds a test to moxa_open() that prevents opening unavailable
ports.
