Subject: [PATCH 14/15] tty: hvc: introduce the hv_ops.flush operation for hvc drivers
Date: Tue,  1 May 2018 00:55:57 +1000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180430145558.4308-15-npiggin@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180430145558.4308-1-npiggin@gmail.com>

Use .flush to wait for drivers to flush their console outside of
the spinlock, to reduce lock/irq latencies.

Flush the hvc console driver after each write, which can help
messages make it out to the console after a crash.
