Subject[PATCH 3.4 012/134] pps: Fix a use-after free bug when unregistering a source.
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: George Spelvin <linux@horizon.com>

commit d953e0e837e65ecc1ddaa4f9560f7925878a0de6 upstream.

Remove the cdev from the system (with cdev_del) *before* deallocating it
(in pps_device_destruct, called via kobject_put from device_destroy).

Also prevent deallocating a device with open file handles.

A better long-term fix is probably to remove the cdev from the pps_device
entirely, and instead have all devices reference one global cdev. Then
the deallocation ordering becomes simpler.

But that's more complex and invasive change, so we leave that
for later.
