Nope. Commit 966031f340185edd ("n_tty: fix EXTPROC vs ICANON interaction with
TIOCINQ (aka FIONREAD)") is "Wed Dec 20 17:57:06 2017 -0800" but the last
occurrence on linux.git (commit 008464a9360e31b1 ("Merge branch 'for-linus' of
git://")) is only a few days ago
("Wed May 9 10:49:52 2018 -1000").

The last occurrence on linux.git is considered as a duplicate of

[upstream] INFO: rcu detected stall in n_tty_receive_char_special

which we already have a reproducer at
and debug output is available at .

We are currently waiting for comments from Peter Hurley who added that code.
