[PATCH 3.9-stable] leds: leds-gpio: reserve gpio before using it.

From: Jonghwan Choi
Date: Tue May 21 2013 - 21:52:23 EST

This patch looks like it should be in the 3.9-stable tree, should we apply


From: "Timo Teras <timo.teras@xxxxxx>"

commit 803d19d57a042e86e9e9b685bbc3f4a0a751040f upstream

This reverts commit a99d76f (leds: leds-gpio: use gpio_request_one)
and commit 2d7c22f (leds: leds-gpio: set devm_gpio_request_one()
flags param correctly) which was a fix of the first one.

The conversion to devm_gpio_request in commit e3b1d44c (leds:
leds-gpio: use devm_gpio_request_one) is not reverted.

The problem is that gpio_cansleep() and gpio_get_value_cansleep()
calls can crash if the gpio is not first reserved. Incidentally this
same bug existed earlier and was fixed similarly in commit d95cbe61
(leds: Fix potential leds-gpio oops). But the OOPS is real. It happens
when GPIOs are provided by module which is not yet loaded.

So this fixes the following BUG during my ALIX boot (3.9.2-vanilla):
