SubjectRe: Uartlite - ulite_transmit
Hi Peter,

sorry for delay. I had to look at another issue.

Below is full log:
1. I setup baudrate to 50. (It could be possible to set it up to 0 too)
That's why I think that doesn't matter what baudrate is setup.

2. You see where ulite_startup is called. It is called only once.

3. You see that there is no call __uart_wait_until_sent(). It could be
called for ASYNC mode. The second thing is __uart_wait_until_sent
function is checking if tx fifo is empty not circ buffer is empty.

4. Next thing is that in uart_close. port->count is 2 which means that
the executing path is
if (port->count) {
spin_unlock_irqrestore(&port->lock, flags);
goto done;
}
which means that there is no chance to call __uart_wait_until_sent
function anyway.
5. I did one modification to add simple while loop till circ buffer is
empty to the same location to see what happen (timouts are bogus values).

if (port->count) {
spin_unlock_irqrestore(&port->lock, flags);
printk("************ %x %x\n", (&uport->state->xmit)->tail,
(&uport->state->xmit)->head);
while (!uart_circ_empty(&uport->state->xmit)) {
msleep_interruptible(jiffies_to_msecs((uport->timeout - HZ/50)));
if (signal_pending(current))
break;
if (time_after(jiffies, jiffies + uport->timeout))
break;
}
printk("************\n");
goto done;
}
Here is log: (Between **** you can see what chars are not printed)

I think that will be good to check if circ buffer is empty. As you
suggest uart_close function will be probably the best place.

Any other suggestion?

Thanks,
Michal
