[PATCH 4.14 30/91] tty: n_gsm: Fix long delays with control frame timeouts in ADM mode

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

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


From: Tony Lindgren <tony@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit e9ec22547986dd32c5c70da78107ce35dbff1344 upstream.

Commit ea3d8465ab9b ("tty: n_gsm: Allow ADM response in addition to UA for
control dlci") added support for DLCI to stay in Asynchronous Disconnected
Mode (ADM). But we still get long delays waiting for commands to other
DLCI to complete:

--> 5) C: SABM(P)
Q> 0) C: UIH(F)
Q> 0) C: UIH(F)
Q> 0) C: UIH(F)

This happens because gsm_control_send() sets cretries timer to T2 that is
by default set to 34. This will cause resend for T2 times for the control
frame. In ADM mode, we will never get a response so the control frame, so
retries are just delaying all the commands.

Let's fix the issue by setting DLCI_MODE_ADM flag after detecting the ADM
mode for the control DLCI. Then we can use that in gsm_control_send() to
set retries to 1. This means the control frame will be sent once allowing
the other end at an opportunity to switch from ADM to ABM mode.

Note that retries will be decremented in gsm_control_retransmit() so
we don't want to set it to 0 here.
