[SCSI] sd: udev accessing an uninitialized scsi_disk field results in a crash
sd_probe() calls class_device_add() even before initializing the sdkp->device variable. class_device_add() eventually results in the user mode udev program to be called. udev program can read the the allow_restart attribute of the newly created scsi device. This is resulting in a crash as the show function for allow_restart (i.e sd_show_allow_restart) returns the attribute value by reading the sdkp->device->allow_restart variable. As the sdkp->device is not initialized before calling the user mode hotplug helper, this results in a crash. The patch below solves it by calling class_device_add() only after the necessary fields in the scsi_disk structure are initialized properly.
