Subject[PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 31/47] n_tty: Fix unsafe reference to "other" ldisc
Date
3.19.8-ckt15 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

---8<------------------------------------------------------------

From: Peter Hurley <peter@hurleysoftware.com>

commit 6d27a63caad3f13e96cf065d2d96828c2006be6b upstream.

Although n_tty_check_unthrottle() has a valid ldisc reference (since
the tty core gets the ldisc ref in tty_read() before calling the line
discipline read() method), it does not have a valid ldisc reference to
the "other" pty of a pty pair. Since getting an ldisc reference for
tty->link essentially open-codes tty_wakeup(), just replace with the
equivalent tty_wakeup().
