Subject4.14 "uio: Prevent device destruction while fds are open"

I hit use-after-free issues in UIO in 4.14.x, and discovered that it's
already fixed in later kernel versions:

uio: Prevent device destruction while fds are open

Can we have this in 4.14.y?
(good idea to older LTS kernels too)
I picked and tested the following commits in 4.14.x:

# Temporarily revert "uio: Fix an Oops on load",
# to avoid merge conflict later with "uio: use
# request_threaded_irq instead"
git revert f6a6ae4e0f345aa481535bfe2046cd33f4dc37b8

# "uio: Reduce return paths from uio_write()"
git cherry-pick 81daa406c2cc97d85eef9409400404efc2a3f756

# "uio: Prevent device destruction while fds are open"
# Also amend this, change __poll_t to plain unsigned int,
# the former not found in 4.14.
git cherry-pick a93e7b331568227500186a465fee3c2cb5dffd1f
sed -i "s/__poll_t/unsigned int/" drivers/uio/uio.c
git commit --amend drivers/uio/uio.c

# "uio: use request_threaded_irq instead"
git cherry-pick 9421e45f5ff3d558cf8b75a8cc0824530caf3453

# "uio: change to use the mutex lock instead of the spin lock"
# Resolve conflict due to __poll_t in patch context.
git cherry-pick 543af5861f41af0a5d2432f6fb5976af50f9cee5
sed -i -e '/<<<<<<</,/=======/d' -e '/>>>>>>>/d' \
-e 's/__poll_t/unsigned int/' drivers/uio/uio.c
git add drivers/uio/uio.c
git cherry-pick --continue

# uio: fix crash after the device is unregistered
git cherry-pick 57c5f4df0a5a0ee83df799991251e2ee93a5e4e9

# uio: fix wrong return value from uio_mmap()
git cherry-pick e7de2590f18a272e63732b9d519250d1b522b2c4

# uio: fix possible circular locking dependency
git cherry-pick b34e9a15b37b8ddbf06a4da142b0c39c74211eb4

# Revert "uio: use request_threaded_irq instead"
git cherry-pick 3d27c4de8d4fb2d4099ff324671792aa2578c6f9

# re-apply: uio: Fix an Oops on load
git cherry-pick 432798195bbce1f8cd33d1c0284d0538835e25fb
