libnvdimm/security: Require nvdimm_security_setup_events() to succeed
The following warning: ACPI0012:00: security event setup failed: -19 ...is meant to capture exceptional failures of sysfs_get_dirent(), however it will also fail in the common case when security support is disabled. A few issues: 1/ A dev_warn() report for a common case is too chatty 2/ The setup of this notifier is generic, no need for it to be driven from the nfit driver, it can exist completely in the core. 3/ If it fails for any reason besides security support being disabled, that's fatal and should abort DIMM activation. Userspace may hang if it never gets overwrite notifications. 4/ The dirent needs to be released. Move the call to the core 'dimm' driver, make it conditional on security support being active, make it fatal for the exceptional case, add the missing sysfs_put() at device disable time. Fixes: 7d988097c546 ("...Add security DSM overwrite support") Reviewed-by: Dave Jiang <dave.jiang@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com>
