console log do not output after uart cable plug out and re-connect

Dear Nxp

      i use the imx6solo and  run the linux , the kernel is 4.14.78.

      the ttymxc0 is the debug port, i pass the parameter "console=ttymxc0,115200 consoleblank=0" from the uboot.

 

 

      i run a application for communicate with mcu in the uart1, and i use a usb-to-serial board to connect the device`s uart0(/dev/ttymxc0) and pc, run the securtCRT in the PC to get the log.

 

      i find that when i plug the usb-to-serial cable in the pc side out,  the application is not running any more. and after i re-connect them, it`s not any output in my pc.

 

      I tried some scenarios:

      after the device boot, i run a shell script in the rcS.

      the shell script is :

                  #!/bin/sh

                  while :
                  do
                        sleep 1
                        echo "test"
                  done

 

      okay, This is a very simple code, output the "test" log into the console every one second.

      take the same action as above, the log is do not print.

 

      but the kernel is running well when the issue happend, i can still login in the /dev/pts0 through ssh.

      and i get the dmesg when the issue happended.

 

      the dmesg:

         and i get the state of /dev/ttymxc0:

normal:

root@imx6solosabresd:~# stty -F /dev/ttymxc0
speed 115200 baud; line = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^?; kill = ^U; eof = ^D; eol =
; eol2 = <undef>;
swtch = <undef>; start = ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; rprnt = ^R; werase = ^W;
lnext = ^V; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0;
-brkint -icrnl -imaxbel
-isig -icanon -iexten -echo -echoe -echok -echoctl -echoke

 

after issue:
root@imx6solosabresd:~# stty -F /dev/ttymxc0
speed 115200 baud; line = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^?; kill = ^U; eof = ^D; eol =
; eol2 = <undef>;
swtch = <undef>; start = ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; rprnt = ^R; werase = ^W;
lnext = ^V; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0;
-brkint ixoff -imaxbel
-iexten

 

 

      and after i re-connect them , the uart is not any output, but when i enter "ctrl + c" or "ctrl + q".

      i can see the application run again and log out normal again.

 

      this is a strange question, look like the application run from the console is freezed.

      i don`t have any idea about it, hope the nxp community can help me.

 

 

Thanks, vecio.lin.
