Subject[PATCHv6 2/7] tty: Hold tty_ldisc_lock() during tty_reopen()
Date
tty_ldisc_reinit() doesn't race with neither tty_ldisc_hangup()
nor set_ldisc() nor tty_ldisc_release() as they use tty lock.
But it races with anyone who expects line discipline to be the same
after hoding read semaphore in tty_ldisc_ref().

We've seen the following crash on v4.9.108 stable:

BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at 0000000000002260
IP: [..] n_tty_receive_buf_common+0x5f/0x86d
Workqueue: events_unbound flush_to_ldisc
Call Trace:
[..] n_tty_receive_buf2
[..] tty_ldisc_receive_buf
[..] flush_to_ldisc
[..] process_one_work
[..] worker_thread
[..] kthread
[..] ret_from_fork

tty_ldisc_reinit() should be called with ldisc_sem hold for writing,
which will protect any reader against line discipline changes.
