Subject[34-longterm 139/179] powerpc/pseries/hvconsole: Fix dropped console output
Date
From: Anton Blanchard <anton@samba.org>

-------------------
This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/paulg/longterm-queue-2.6.34.git
If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.
-------------------
commit 51d33021425e1f905beb4208823146f2fb6517da upstream.

Return -EAGAIN when we get H_BUSY back from the hypervisor. This
makes the hvc console driver retry, avoiding dropped printks.
