Subject[PATCH v1] driver core: fix race between creating/querying glue dir and its cleanup
Date
The global mutex of 'gdp_mutex' is used to serialize creating/querying
glue dir and its cleanup. Turns out it isn't a perfect way because
part(kobj_kset_leave()) of the actual cleanup action() is done inside
the release handler of the glue dir kobject. That means gdp_mutex has
to be held before releasing the last reference count of the glue dir
kobject.

This patch moves glue dir's cleanup after kobject_del() in device_del()
for avoiding the race.

V1:
- fix live_in_glue_dir() by Chandra
- fix get_glue_dir
- now it can pass of-unittest, in which ktest robot reported
failure before
