Subject[PATCH] kgdb: Resolve races during kgdb_io_register/unregister_module
Date
Currently kgdb_register_callbacks() and kgdb_unregister_callbacks()
are called outside the scope of the kgdb_registration_lock. This
allows them to race with each other. This could do all sorts of crazy
things up to and including dbg_io_ops becoming NULL partway through the
execution of the kgdb trap handler (which isn't allowed and would be
fatal).

Fix this by bringing the trap handler setup and teardown into the scope
of the registration lock.
