[PATCH 4.1 051/159] [media] media: am437x-vpfe: Fix a race condition during release

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sat Sep 26 2015 - 17:16:00 EST

4.1-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Benoit Parrot <bparrot@xxxxxx>

commit c99235fa3ef833c3c23926085f2bb68851c8460a upstream.

There was a race condition where during cleanup/release operation
on-going streaming would cause a kernel panic because the hardware
module was disabled prematurely with IRQ still pending.

Fixes: 417d2e507edc ("[media] media: platform: add VPFE capture driver support for AM437X")
