Subject[PATCH 4.15 59/60] serial: core: mark port as initialized after successful IRQ change
4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <>

commit 44117a1d1732c513875d5a163f10d9adbe866c08 upstream.

setserial changes the IRQ via uart_set_info(). It invokes
uart_shutdown() which free the current used IRQ and clear
TTY_PORT_INITIALIZED. It will then update the IRQ number and invoke
uart_startup() before returning to the caller leaving

The next open will crash with
| list_add double add: new=ffffffff839fcc98, prev=ffffffff839fcc98, next=ffffffff839fcc98.
since the close from the IOCTL won't free the IRQ (and clean the list)
due to the TTY_PORT_INITIALIZED check in uart_shutdown().

There is same pattern in uart_do_autoconfig() and I *think* it also
needs to set TTY_PORT_INITIALIZED there.
Is there a reason why uart_startup() does not set the flag by itself
after the IRQ has been acquired (since it is cleared in uart_shutdown)?
