Subject[PATCH 3.16 023/346] serial: samsung: Fix possible out of bounds access on non-DT platform
3.16.39-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Krzysztof Kozlowski <>

commit 926b7b5122c96e1f18cd20e85a286c7ec8d18c97 upstream.

On non-DeviceTree platforms, the index of serial device is a static
variable incremented on each probe. It is incremented even if deferred
probe happens when getting the clock in s3c24xx_serial_init_port().

This index is used for referencing elements of statically allocated
s3c24xx_serial_ports array. In case of re-probe, the index will point
outside of this array leading to memory corruption.

Increment the index only on successful probe.
