    wimax: oops: wimax_dev_add() is the only one that can initialize the state · 94c7f2d4
    Inaky Perez-Gonzalez authored
    When a new wimax_dev is created, it's state has to be __WIMAX_ST_NULL
    until wimax_dev_add() is succesfully called. This allows calls into
    the stack that happen before said time to be rejected.
    Until now, the state was being set (by mistake) to UNINITIALIZED,
    which was allowing calls such as wimax_report_rfkill_hw() to go
    through even when a call to wimax_dev_add() had failed; that was
    causing an oops when touching uninitialized data.
    This situation is normal when the device starts reporting state before
    the whole initialization has been completed. It just has to be dealt
