Subject[patch 18/83] spi: avoid spidev crash when device is removed
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Wolfgang Ocker <weo@reccoware.de>

commit aaacf4bb51b243875b203e6ff73b5047636b4efa upstream.

I saw a kernel oops in spidev_remove() when a spidev device was registered
and I unloaded the SPI master driver:

Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x00000004
Faulting instruction address: 0xc01c0c50
Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]

IMHO a call to spi_set_drvdata() is missing in spidev_probe(). The patch
below helped.
