Subject[PATCH 3.16 127/346] ubi: Fix race condition between ubi device creation and udev
3.16.39-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Iosif Harutyunov <iharutyunov@SonicWALL.com>

commit 714fb87e8bc05ff78255afc0dca981e8c5242785 upstream.

Install the UBI device object before we arm sysfs.
Otherwise udev tries to read sysfs attributes before UBI is ready and
udev rules will not match.
