TTY: ldisc, do not close until there are readers
commit 92f6fa09bd453ffe3351fa1f1377a1b7cfa911e6 upstream. We restored tty_ldisc_wait_idle in 100eeae2c5c (TTY: restore tty_ldisc_wait_idle). We used it in the ldisc changing path to fix the case where there are tasks in n_tty_read waiting for data and somebody tries to change ldisc. Similar to the case above, there may be also tasks waiting in n_tty_read while hangup is performed. As 65b770468e98 (tty-ldisc: turn ldisc user count into a proper refcount) removed the wait-until-idle from all paths, hangup path won't wait for them to disappear either now. So add it back even to the hangup path. There is a difference, we need uninterruptible sleep as there is obviously HUP signal pending. So tty_ldisc_wait_idle now sleeps without possibility to be interrupted. This is what original tty_ldisc_wait_idle did. After the wait idle reintroduction (100eeae2c5c), we have had interruptible sleeps for the ldisc changing path. But as there is a 5s timeout anyway, we don't allow it to be interrupted from now on. It's not worth the added complexity of deciding what kind of sleep we want. Before 65b770468e98 tty_ldisc_release was called also from tty_ldisc_release. It is called from tty_release, so I don't think we need to restore that one. This is nicely reproducible after constifying the timing when drivers/tty/n_tty.c is patched as follows ("TTY: ntty, add one more sanity check" patch is needed to actually see it explode): %% -1548,6 +1549,7 @@ static int n_tty_open(struct tty_struct *tty) /* These are ugly.
