Subject[43/71] ehea: Fix memory hotplug oops
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Anton Blanchard <anton@samba.org>

commit 21ccc7936dac5ca9b3e2838bbc112a60f34e18b3 upstream.

The ehea driver oopses during memory hotplug if the ports are not
up. A simple testcase:

# ifconfig ethX down
# echo offline > /sys/devices/system/memory/memory32/state
Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]
last sysfs file: /sys/devices/system/memory/memory32/state

To fix this, initialise the waitqueues during port probe instead
of port open.
