Subject: [PATCH v4] Bluetooth: hci_ldisc: Add NULL check for tiocmget() and tiocmset()
Date: Tue, 12 Feb 2019 00:36:49 -0800
Message-ID: <20190212083645.GA7055@myunghoj-Precision-5530> (raw)

tiocmget() and tiocmset() operations are optional and some tty drivers
like pty miss the operations. H4 spec requires the operations to set
flow control. Return -EOPNOTSUPP in hci_uart_tty_open() if the oprations
are not supported.

Signed-off-by: Myungho Jung <>
Changes in v2:
  - Add NULL check and return error in ath_setup() instead of
  - Remove braces in if statment

Changes in v3:
  - Fix to return -ENODEV
  - Split into 2 patches
  - Add stable CC and fixes tags

Changes in v4:
  - Return error in hci_uart_tty_open()
