SubjectRegression from patch 'tty: hvc: hvc_poll() break hv read loop'
Hi Nicholas,

I am testing 4.19-rc2 and I see bad behavior with my qemu hvc0
console..

Running interactive with qemu (qemu-2.11.2-1.fc28) on the console
providing hvc0, using options like:

-nographic
-chardev stdio,id=stdio,mux=on,signal=off
-mon chardev=stdio
-device isa-serial,chardev=stdio
-device virtio-serial-pci
-device virtconsole,chardev=stdio

I see the hvc0 console hang regularly, ie doing something like 'up
arrow' in bash causes the hvc0 console to hang. Prior kernels worked
OK.

Any ideas? I'm not familiar with this code.. Thanks!

Subject: [PATCH] tty: hvc: hvc_poll() break hv read loop

Avoid looping with the spinlock held while there is read data
being returned from the hv driver. Instead note if the entire
size returned by tty_buffer_request_room was read, and request
another read poll.

This limits the critical section lengths, and provides more
even service to other consoles in case there is a pathological
condition.
