Amit Shah - March 8, 2010, 3:38 a.m.
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 asynchronous
itself....

So this can happen

        hvc_close                               hvc_remove
        hung up ? - no
                                                lock
                                                tty = hp->tty
                                                unlock
        lock
        hp->tty = NULL
        unlock
        notify del
        kref_put the hvc struct
        close completes
        tty is destroyed
                                                tty_hangup dead tty
                                                tty->ops will be NULL
                                                NULL->...

This patch adds some tty krefs and also converts to using tty_vhangup().

I didn't receive a reply from the linuxppc folks to take this patch via
their tree. Greg, can you please take this in your tty tree? It's needed
for 2.6.34, but since hvc_remove() was exported in 2.6.33, it might make
sense for stable as well.
