3.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Lars Poeschel <poeschel@lemonage.de>

commit 3ac06b905655b3ef2fd2196bab36e4587e1e4e4f upstream.

3GPP TS 07.10 states in section
"The length byte contains the value 2 or 3 ... depending on the break
signal." The break byte is optional and if it is sent, the length is
3. In fact the driver was not able to work with modems that send this
break byte in their modem status control message. If the modem just
sends the break byte if it is really set, then weird things might
The code for deconding the modem status to the internal linux
presentation in gsm_process_modem has already a big comment about
this 2 or 3 byte length thing and it is already able to decode the
brk, but the code calling the gsm_process_modem function in
gsm_control_modem does not encode it and hand it over the right way.
This patch fixes this.
Without this fix if the modem sends the brk byte in it's modem status
control message the driver will hang when opening a muxed channel.
