* [PATCH] powerpc/udbg_hvc: retry putc on -EAGAIN

hvterm_raw_put_chars() calls hvc_put_chars(), which may return -EAGAIN
when the underlying hcall returns a "busy" status, but udbg_hvc_putc()
doesn't handle this. When using xmon on a PowerVM guest, this can
result in incomplete or garbled output when printing relatively large
amounts of data quickly, such as when dumping the kernel log buffer.

Call again on -EAGAIN.

Subject line does not match up with this file name.

Don't you want "tty" and "hvc" in there somewhere?

thanks,

It's a powerpc only driver, but I guess the subject should still be
"tty: hvc: ..." to match convention.

I was planning to take this via the powerpc tree, but I can drop it if
you'd rather take it.

cheers
