Fix hang on IBM Token Ring PCMCIA card ejection

Ejecting a PCMCIA IBM Token Ring card that has not had its dev->open()
called will reliably trigger an uninitialized spinlock oops when
spinlock debugging is enabled. The system then hangs, occasionally
softlockup oopsing.  Apparently ibmtr.c:tok_interrupt() doesn't expect
to be called before tok_open(), but tok_interrupt() gets called anyway
when the card is ejected.  So, set an already-existing flag which
causes tok_interrupt() to bail out early upon card ejection. Tested by
inserting and removing the PCMCIA card several times.
