char: moxa, prevent opening unavailable ports
Dirk Eibach [Thu, 18 Jun 2009 23:49:15 +0000 (16:49 -0700)]
In moxa.c there are 32 minor numbers reserved for each device.  The number
of ports actually available per device is stored in
moxa_board_conf->numPorts.  This number is not considered in moxa_open().
Opening a port that is not available results in a kernel oops.  This patch
adds a test to moxa_open() that prevents opening unavailable ports.
