Subject[PATCH 3.2 070/199] USB: serial: io_ti: fix another NULL-deref at open
3.2.87-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Johan Hovold <johan@kernel.org>

commit 4f9785cc99feeb3673993b471f646b4dbaec2cc1 upstream.

In case a device is left in "boot-mode" we must not register any port
devices in order to avoid a NULL-pointer dereference on open due to
missing endpoints. This could be used by a malicious device to trigger
an OOPS:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000030
...
[<bf0caa84>] (edge_open [io_ti]) from [<bf0b0118>] (serial_port_activate+0x68/0x98 [usbserial])

[bwh: Backported to 3.2:
- No heartbeat_work to initialise earlier
- No separate port_probe and port_remove operations, so add check for null
port pointers in edge_release()
- Adjust context]
