Subject: [PATCH v1 1/1] tty: serial: add missing spin_lock_init for SiFive serial console
Date: Sat,  9 May 2020 03:24:12 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

An uninitialised spin lock for sifive serial console raises a bad
magic spin_lock error as reported and discussed here [1].
Initialising the spin lock resolves the issue.

The fix is tested on HiFive Unleashed A00 board with Linux 5.7-rc4
and OpenSBI v0.7
