[PATCH] hvc_console: Fix a race between hvc_close and hvc_remove
Alan pointed out a race in the code where hvc_remove is invoked. The recent virtio_console work is the first user of hvc_remove(). Alan describes it thus: The hvc_console assumes that a close and remove call can't occur at the same time. In addition tty_hangup(tty) is problematic as tty_hangup is asynchronou... 26 Feb 2010 07:26
