Subject: [PATCH 3.4 22/23] sparc64: ldc_connect() should not return EINVAL when handshake is in progress.

3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Sowmini Varadhan <sowmini.varadhan@...cle.com>

[ Upstream commit 4ec1b01029b4facb651b8ef70bc20a4be4cebc63 ]

The LDC handshake could have been asynchronously triggered
after ldc_bind() enables the ldc_rx() receive interrupt-handler
(and thus intercepts incoming control packets)
and before vio_port_up() calls ldc_connect(). If that is the case,
ldc_connect() should return 0 and let the state-machine
progress.
