Subject[008/103] USB: fix bug in initialization of interface minor numbers
2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Alan Stern <stern@rowland.harvard.edu>

commit 0026e00523a85b90a92a93ddf6660939ecef3e54 upstream.

Recent changes in the usbhid layer exposed a bug in usbcore. If
CONFIG_USB_DYNAMIC_MINORS is enabled then an interface may be assigned
a minor number of 0. However interfaces that aren't registered as USB
class devices also have their minor number set to 0, during
initialization. As a result usb_find_interface() may return the
wrong interface, leading to a crash.

This patch (as1418) fixes the problem by initializing every
interface's minor number to -1. It also cleans up the
usb_register_dev() function, which besides being somewhat awkwardly
written, does not unwind completely on all its error paths.
