Subject[PATCH 3.4 106/176] gpio: sysfs: fix gpio-chip device-attribute leak
Date
From: Johan Hovold <johan@kernel.org>

3.4.107-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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


commit 121b6a79955a3a3fd7bbb9b8cb88d5b9dad6283d upstream.

The gpio-chip device attributes were never destroyed when the device was
removed.

Fix by using device_create_with_groups() to create the device attributes
of the chip class device.

Note that this also fixes the attribute-creation race with userspace.

Fixes: d8f388d8dc8d ("gpio: sysfs interface")
