This is a note to let you know that I've just added the patch titled

    tty: Don't hold ldisc lock in tty_reopen() if ldisc present

to my tty git tree which can be found at
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/tty.git
in the tty-linus branch.

The patch will show up in the next release of the linux-next tree
(usually sometime within the next 24 hours during the week.)

The patch will hopefully also be merged in Linus's tree for the
next -rc kernel release.

If you have any questions about this process, please let me know.

Subject: tty: Don't hold ldisc lock in tty_reopen() if ldisc present

Try to get reference for ldisc during tty_reopen().
If ldisc present, we don't need to do tty_ldisc_reinit() and lock the
write side for line discipline semaphore.
Effectively, it optimizes fast-path for tty_reopen(), but more
importantly it won't interrupt ongoing IO on the tty as no ldisc change
is needed.
Fixes user-visible issue when tty_reopen() interrupted login process for
user with a long password, observed and reported by Lukas.

Fixes: c96cf923a98d ("tty: Don't block on IO when ldisc change is pending")
Fixes: 83d817f41070 ("tty: Hold tty_ldisc_lock() during tty_reopen()")
