From: nixiaoming <nixiaoming@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit c79dde629d2027ca80329c62854a7635e623d527 ]

After rmmod 8250.ko
tty_kref_put starts kwork (release_one_tty) to release proc interface
oops when accessing driver->driver_name in proc_tty_unregister_driver

Use jprobe, found driver->driver_name point to 8250.ko
static static struct uart_driver serial8250_reg
.driver_name= serial,

Use name in proc_dir_entry instead of driver->driver_name to fix oops
