Subject[patch 031/123] macintosh/therm_adt746x: Fix sysfs attributes lifetime
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

-----------------
From: Jean Delvare <khali@linux-fr.org>

commit 33a470f6d5e1879c26f16f6b34dc09f82d44f6e9 upstream.

Looking at drivers/macintosh/therm_adt746x.c, the sysfs files are
created in thermostat_init() and removed in thermostat_exit(), which
are the driver's init and exit functions. These files are backed-up by
a per-device structure, so it looks like the wrong thing to do: the
sysfs files have a lifetime longer than the data structure that is
backing it up.

I think that sysfs files creation should be moved to the end of
probe_thermostat() and sysfs files removal should be moved to the
beginning of remove_thermostat().
