[media] rc: Set rdev before irq setup
This fixes a problem in fintek-cir and nuvoton-cir where the irq handler would trigger during module load before the rdev member was set, causing a NULL pointer crash. It seems this crash is very reproducible (just bombard the receiver with IR signals during module load), probably because when request_irq is called, any pending intterupt is handled immediately, before request_irq returns and rdev can be set. This same crash was supposed to be fixed by commit 9ef449c6b31bb6a8e6dedc24de475a3b8c79be20 ("[media] rc: Postpone ISR registration"), but the crash was still observed on the nuvoton-cir driver. This commit was tested on nuvoton-cir only. Cc: Jarod Wilson <jarod@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Matthijs Kooijman <matthijs@stdin.nl> Signed-off-by: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@redhat.com>
