Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for-4.9 33/53] backlight: lcd: Fix race condition during register
Date
From: Uwe Kleine-König <u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de>

[ Upstream commit cc21942bce652d1a92dae85b785378256e1df1f7 ]

Once device_register is called for a device its attributes might be
accessed. As the callbacks of a lcd device's attributes make use of the
lcd_ops, the respective member must be setup before calling
device_register.
