Thanks much for that again.
Any chance you have sysrq enabled and could print: locks held in system

I suppose, userspace hangs in n_tty_receive_buf_common(), which is
better of cause than null-ptr dereference, but I believe we can improve
it by stopping a reader earlier if there is any writer pending.
