Subject: CVE-2024-38633: serial: max3100: Update uart_driver_registered on driver removal

Description
===========

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

serial: max3100: Update uart_driver_registered on driver removal

The removal of the last MAX3100 device triggers the removal of
the driver. However, code doesn't update the respective global
variable and after insmod — rmmod — insmod cycle the kernel
oopses:

  max3100 spi-PRP0001:01: max3100_probe: adding port 0
  BUG: kernel NULL pointer dereference, address: 0000000000000408
  ...
  RIP: 0010:serial_core_register_port+0xa0/0x840
  ...
   max3100_probe+0x1b6/0x280 [max3100]
   spi_probe+0x8d/0xb0

Update the actual state so next time UART driver will be registered
again.

Hugo also noticed, that the error path in the probe also affected
by having the variable set, and not cleared. Instead of clearing it
move the assignment after the successfull uart_register_driver() call.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2024-38633 to this issue.

Mitigation
==========

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
