Subject[PATCH 4.4 039/160] uio: ensure class is registered before devices
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Alexandre Belloni <alexandre.belloni@bootlin.com>

[ Upstream commit ae61cf5b9913027c6953a79ed3894da4f47061bd ]

When both uio and the uio drivers are built in the kernel, it is possible
for a driver to register devices before the uio class is registered.

This may result in a NULL pointer dereference later on in
get_device_parent() when accessing the class glue_dirs spinlock.

The trace looks like that:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000140
[...]
[<ffff0000089cc234>] _raw_spin_lock+0x14/0x48
[<ffff0000084f56bc>] device_add+0x154/0x6a0

[<ffff0000084f81b8>] driver_attach+0x20/0x28
[<ffff0000084f7d08>] bus_add_driver+0x1b8/0x228
[<ffff0000084f93c0>] driver_register+0x60/0xf8
[<ffff0000083fb918>] __pci_register_driver+0x40/0x48

Return EPROBE_DEFER in that case so the driver can register the device
later.
