Subject[PATCH 4.18 056/171] zram: close udev startup race condition as default groups
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

commit fef912bf860e upstream.
commit 98af4d4df889 upstream.

I got a report from Howard Chen that he saw zram and sysfs race(ie,
zram block device file is created but sysfs for it isn't yet)
when he tried to create new zram devices via hotadd knob.

v4.20 kernel fixes it by [1, 2] but it's too large size to merge
into -stable so this patch fixes the problem by registering defualt
group by Greg KH's approach[3].

This patch should be applied to every stable tree [3.16+] currently
existing from kernel.org because the problem was introduced at 2.6.37
by [4].

[1] fef912bf860e, block: genhd: add 'groups' argument to device_add_disk
[2] 98af4d4df889, zram: register default groups with device_add_disk()
[3] http://kroah.com/log/blog/2013/06/26/how-to-create-a-sysfs-file-correctly/
[4] 33863c21e69e9, Staging: zram: Replace ioctls with sysfs interface
