Subject[PATCH 4.19 72/92] watchdog: initialize device before misc_register
Date
From: Krzysztof Sobota <krzysztof.sobota@nokia.com>

[ Upstream commit cb36e29bb0e4b0c33c3d5866a0a4aebace4c99b7 ]

When watchdog device is being registered, it calls misc_register that
makes watchdog available for systemd to open. This is a data race
scenario, because when device is open it may still have device struct
not initialized - this in turn causes a crash. This patch moves
device initialization before misc_register call and it solves the
problem printed below.
