Subject[PATCH v4 8/9] tty: n_gsm: fix resource allocation order in gsm_activate_mux()
Date
From: Daniel Starke <daniel.starke@siemens.com>

Within gsm_activate_mux() all timers and locks are initiated before the
actual resource for the control channel is allocated. This can lead to race
conditions.

Allocate the control channel DLCI object first to avoid race conditions.

Fixes: e1eaea46bb40 ("tty: n_gsm line discipline")
