Subject[26/89] nozomi: quick fix for the close/close bug
2.6.31-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Alan Cox <>

commit eeec32a731631a9bad9abb21c626b9f2840bee0d upstream.

Nozomi goes wrong if you get the sequence



which turns out to occur on some ppp type setups.

This is a quick patch up for the problem. It's not really fixing Nozomi
which completely fails to implement tty open/close semantics and all the
other needed stuff. Doing it right is a rather more invasive patch set and
not one that will backport.
