Hi,
This won't compile on 3.18 kernel since ->tx_len doesn't exist yet.

Here is the backported version of this patch:
Thanks !
======================

commit 31ca2c63fdc0aee725cbd4f207c1256f5deaabde upstream.

If uart_flush_buffer() is called between atmel_tx_dma() and
atmel_complete_tx_dma(), the circular buffer has been cleared, but not
its length.
That leads to a circular buffer overflow (dumping (UART_XMIT_SIZE -
sg_dma_len(&atmel_port->sg_tx)) bytes).
