Subject[PATCH 5.15 042/230] platform/x86: wmi: Fix driver->notify() vs ->probe() race
Date
From: Hans de Goede <hdegoede@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 9918878676a5f9e99b98679f04b9e6c0f5426b0a ]

The driver core sets struct device->driver before calling out
to the bus' probe() method, this leaves a window where an ACPI
notify may happen on the WMI object before the driver's
probe() method has completed running, causing e.g. the
driver's notify() callback to get called with drvdata
not yet being set leading to a NULL pointer deref.

At a check for this to the WMI core, ensuring that the notify()
callback is not called before the driver is ready.
