SubjectRe: [PATCH] Bluetooth: hci_serdev: Init hci_uart proto_lock to avoid oops
Hi Lukas,

> John Stultz reports a boot time crash with the HiKey board (which uses
> hci_serdev) occurring in hci_uart_tx_wakeup(). That function is
> contained in hci_ldisc.c, but also called from the newer hci_serdev.c.
> It acquires the proto_lock in struct hci_uart and it turns out that we
> forgot to init the lock in the serdev code path, thus causing the crash.
> John bisected the crash to commit 67d2f8781b9f ("Bluetooth: hci_ldisc:
> Allow sleeping while proto locks are held"), but the issue was present
> before and the commit merely exposed it. (Perhaps by luck, the crash
> did not occur with rwlocks.)
> Init the proto_lock in the serdev code path to avoid the oops.
> Stack trace for posterity:
> Unable to handle kernel read from unreadable memory at 406f127000
> [000000406f127000] user address but active_mm is swapper
