Description

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: serial: mxs-auart: add spinlock around changing cts state The uart_handle_cts_change() function in serial_core expects the caller to hold uport->lock. For example, I have seen the below kernel splat, when the Bluetooth driver is loaded on an i.MX28 board. [ 85.119255] ------------[ cut here ]------------ [ 85.124413] WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 27 at /drivers/tty/serial/serial_core.c:3453 uart_handle_cts_change+0xb4/0xec [ 85.134694] Modules linked in: hci_uart bluetooth ecdh_generic ecc wlcore_sdio configfs [ 85.143314] CPU: 0 PID: 27 Comm: kworker/u3:0 Not tainted 6.6.3-00021-gd62a2f068f92 #1 [ 85.151396] Hardware name: Freescale MXS (Device Tree) [ 85.156679] Workqueue: hci0 hci_power_on [bluetooth] (...)
