Subject[PATCH 4.9 20/44] uart: Fix crash in uart_write and uart_put_char
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Samir Virmani <samir@embedur.com>

commit aff9cf5955185d1f183227e46c5f8673fa483813 upstream.

We were experiencing a crash similar to the one reported as part of
commit:a5ba1d95e46e ("uart: fix race between uart_put_char() and
uart_shutdown()") in our testbed as well. We continue to observe the same
crash after integrating the commit a5ba1d95e46e ("uart: fix race between
uart_put_char() and uart_shutdown()")

On reviewing the change, the port lock should be taken prior to checking for
if (!circ->buf) in fn. __uart_put_char and other fns. that update the buffer
uart_state->xmit.
