Subject: [PATCH] misc: bcm-vk: fix tty registration race
Date: Fri, 17 Sep 2021 13:57:36 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Make sure to set the tty class-device driver data before registering the
tty to avoid having a racing open() dereference a NULL pointer.

Fixes: 91ca10d6fa07 ("misc: bcm-vk: add ttyVK support")
