Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 70/73] net: qualcomm: rmnet: Fix incorrect assignment of real_dev
Date
From: Subash Abhinov Kasiviswanathan <subashab@codeaurora.org>

[ Upstream commit d02854dc1999ed3e7fd79ec700c64ac23ac0c458 ]

A null dereference was observed when a sysctl was being set
from userspace and rmnet was stuck trying to complete some actions
in the NETDEV_REGISTER callback. This is because the real_dev is set
only after the device registration handler completes.

sysctl call stack -
