[PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 057/103] USB: console: fix uninitialised ldisc semaphore

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Wed Feb 18 2015 - 19:44:11 EST

3.13.11-ckt16 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Johan Hovold <johan@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit d269d4434c72ed0da3a9b1230c30da82c4918c63 upstream.

The USB console currently allocates a temporary fake tty which is used
to pass terminal settings to the underlying serial driver.

The tty struct is not fully initialised, something which can lead to a
lockdep warning (or worse) if a serial driver tries to acquire a
line-discipline reference:

usbserial: USB Serial support registered for pl2303
pl2303 1-2.1:1.0: pl2303 converter detected
usb 1-2.1: pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
INFO: trying to register non-static key.
the code is fine but needs lockdep annotation.
turning off the locking correctness validator.
