Subject[PATCH v2 0/3] serial: liteuart: fix driver unbind
Ilia Sergachev noted that the liteuart remove() function would trigger a
NULL-pointer dereference if it was ever called since the driver data
pointer was never initialised.

Turns out there are more bugs in this part of the driver which clearly
has never been tested.

Also relax the Kconfig dependencies so that the driver can be
compile-tested without first enabling a seemingly unrelated SoC
controller driver.

Note that this series depends on the fix by Ilia:


Changes in v2
- allow compile testing without CONFIG_OF (Andy)
- reword commit message to clarify that LITEX is neither a build or
runtime dependency and that the change only makes it easier to
compile test the driver
- move the Kconfig patch last in the series
- add Stafford's reviewed by tags to the two unmodified patches

Johan Hovold (3):
serial: liteuart: fix use-after-free and memleak on unbind
serial: liteuart: fix minor-number leak on probe errors
serial: liteuart: relax compile-test dependencies
