Subject: [PATCH] jsm_tty: Fix a possible null pointer dereference in two
 functions

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Wed, 29 Nov 2017 17:30:36 +0100

Move two debug messages so that a null pointer access can not happen
for the variable "ch" in these functions.

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.

Fixes: 669fef464468d3f02d60a5cf725fc097e03c5cb8 ("serial: jsm: Convert jsm_printk to jsm_dbg")
