Subject: [PATCH v5] bluetooth: Fix WARNING in tty_set_termios()
Date: Fri,  8 Feb 2019 16:06:09 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

tty_set_termios() has the following WARN_ON which can be triggered with a
syscall to invoke TIOCSETD __NR_ioctl.

WARN_ON(tty->driver->type == TTY_DRIVER_TYPE_PTY &&
                tty->driver->subtype == PTY_TYPE_MASTER);

"The problem started with commit 7721383f4199 ("Bluetooth: hci_uart: Support
operational speed during setup") which introduced a new way for how
tty_set_termios() could end up being called for a master pty."

Fix hci_uart_tty_open() to check if tty supports set_termios in addition
to write and error out, if it doesn't.
