Hah. Just seconds after I sent that mail I hit this again. The stack traces
are exactly the same (except for different starting address of

The warnings are triggered by:

struct usb_serial_port *port = tty->driver_data;
/* count is managed under the mutex lock for the tty so cannot
drop to zero until after the last close completes */

BTW, Couple of minutes earlier I got this message:

[ 201.629616] cp210x ttyUSB0: usb_serial_generic_resubmit_read_urb - failed resubmitting read urb, error -1

But after that I disconnected and reconnected the device, so this is probably
not relevant here.
