3.5.7.19 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Amit Shah <amit.shah@redhat.com>

commit 96f97a83910cdb9d89d127c5ee523f8fc040a804 upstream.

If a port gets unplugged while a user is blocked on read(), -ENODEV is
returned.  However, subsequent read()s returned 0, indicating there's no
host-side connection (but not indicating the device went away).

This also happened when a port was unplugged and the user didn't have
any blocking operation pending.  If the user didn't monitor the SIGIO
signal, they won't have a chance to find out if the port went away.

Fix by returning -ENODEV on all read()s after the port gets unplugged.
write() already behaves this way.
