Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski Jan. 16, 2013, 3:56 p.m. -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: =?UTF-8?q?Lothar=20Wa=C3=9Fmann?= <LW@KARO-electronics.de>

commit 6c1ecba8d84841277d68140ef485335d5be28485 upstream.

The VDCTRL4 register does not provide the MXS SET/CLR/TOGGLE feature.
The write in mxsfb_disable_controller() sets the data_cnt for the LCD
DMA to 0 which obviously means the max. count for the LCD DMA and
leads to overwriting arbitrary memory when the display is unblanked.
