David, Alessandro: can we please have a review-n-ack of this one for
2.6.27 and earlier?

Thanks.

When userspace uses SIGIO notification and forgets to disable it before
closing file descriptor, rtc->async_queue contains stale pointer to struct
file. When user space enables again SIGIO notification in different
process, kernel dereferences this (poisoned) pointer and crashes.

So disable SIGIO notification on close.

Kernel panic:
(second run of qemu (requires echo 1024 > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/max_user_freq))
general protection fault: 0000 [1] PREEMPT
