Subject[PATCH 4.20 004/111] tty: Dont hold ldisc lock in tty_reopen() if ldisc present
Date
4.20-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dmitry Safonov <dima@arista.com>

commit d3736d82e8169768218ee0ef68718875918091a0 upstream.

Try to get reference for ldisc during tty_reopen().
If ldisc present, we don't need to do tty_ldisc_reinit() and lock the
write side for line discipline semaphore.
Effectively, it optimizes fast-path for tty_reopen(), but more
importantly it won't interrupt ongoing IO on the tty as no ldisc change
is needed.
Fixes user-visible issue when tty_reopen() interrupted login process for
user with a long password, observed and reported by Lukas.

Fixes: c96cf923a98d ("tty: Don't block on IO when ldisc change is pending")
Fixes: 83d817f41070 ("tty: Hold tty_ldisc_lock() during tty_reopen()")
