serial: lpuart: Avoid division by zero when requested baudrate is
With serdev device support added there's now a corner case where: 1. There is a DT node for a serdev device on one of the UARTs 2. There is no driver that binds against serdev device's compatibility string with 1 and 2 being true it is possible to end up in a situation where a particualr UART has not been initalized to any baudrate when clock_notifier_call_chain() gets called. This effectively translates to set_baudrate(uart, 0); which for LPUART driver result in a division by zero. To avoid this problem, convert lpuart_serial_setbaudrate() to treat zero baudrate as a request to disable the UART. While we are at it add a BUG_ON() to lpuart_setbrg() to simplify finding any future bugs. Signed-off-by: Andrey Smirnov <> Signed-off-by: Sascha Hauer <>
