Subject[PATCH 4.9 21/44] tty/n_hdlc: fix __might_sleep warning
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Paul Fulghum <paulkf@microgate.com>

commit fc01d8c61ce02c034e67378cd3e645734bc18c8c upstream.

Fix __might_sleep warning[1] in tty/n_hdlc.c read due to copy_to_user
call while current is TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE. This is a false positive
since the code path does not depend on current state remaining
TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE. The loop breaks out and sets TASK_RUNNING after
calling copy_to_user.

This patch supresses the warning by setting TASK_RUNNING before calling
copy_to_user.
