What does a lock protect from? Please be explicit and detailed.

What does this do? And why is it needed?

What commit does this fix? Does this need to go to stable kernel trees?
If so, how far back?

Why does cnt matter here? If cnt is 0, the code above should not do
anything at all, right?

Or if it does, should we change tty_insert_flip_string() to always check
for cnt != 0 before it does the first loop? Hm, it looks like it will
abort if cnt is 0, so what is this change really doing? Why do you need
it? What is it "fixing"?

thanks,
