Subject[PATCH] tty: serial_core: recover uport->cons->cflag on uart_close
From: Sahara <>

Since uart_close was converted to use tty_port_close, uart_shutdown
also moved to uart_tty_port_shutdown, which means it does not backup
tty's termios to uart_port.console.cflag when console is closed and
uart_console is true.
By losing this value, serial console was not set correctly especially
after suspend/resume when there is no consumer of console device.
This problem resets console driver's configuration to an unwanted value
and may give a performance regression in the system eventually.
This patch fixes the bug introduced from v4.9 kernel.
