Subject[PATCH 4.14 011/109] serial: sh-sci: prevent lockup on full TTY buffers
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ulrich Hecht <ulrich.hecht+renesas@gmail.com>

commit 7842055bfce4bf0170d0f61df8b2add8399697be upstream.

When the TTY buffers fill up to the configured maximum, a system lockup
occurs:

[ 598.820128] INFO: rcu_preempt detected stalls on CPUs/tasks:
[ 598.825796] 0-...!: (1 GPs behind) idle=5a6/2/0 softirq=1974/1974 fqs=1
[ 598.832577] (detected by 3, t=62517 jiffies, g=296, c=295, q=126)
[ 598.838755] Task dump for CPU 0:
[ 598.841977] swapper/0 R running task 0 0 0 0x00000022
[ 598.849023] Call trace:
[ 598.851476] __switch_to+0x98/0xb0
[ 598.854870] (null)

This can be prevented by doing a dummy read of the RX data register.

This issue affects both HSCIF and SCIF ports. Reported for R-Car H3 ES2.0;
reproduced and fixed on H3 ES1.1. Probably affects other R-Car platforms
as well.
