Subject[patch 064/149] rtc-cmos: do dev_set_drvdata() earlier in the initialization
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Dan Carpenter <error27@gmail.com>

commit 6ba8bcd457d9fc793ac9435aa2e4138f571d4ec5 upstream.

The bug is an oops when dev_get_drvdata() returned null in
cmos_update_irq_enable(). The call tree looks like this:
rtc_dev_ioctl()
=> rtc_update_irq_enable()
=> cmos_update_irq_enable()

It's caused by a race condition in the module initialization. It is
rtc_device_register() which makes the ioctl operations live so I moved
the call to dev_set_drvdata() before the call to rtc_device_register().
