Subject: [PATCH 3.12 132/170] workqueue: fix dev_set_uevent_suppress() imbalance

From: Maxime Bizon <>

3.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit bddbceb688c6d0decaabc7884fede319d02f96c8 upstream.

Uevents are suppressed during attributes registration, but never
restored, so kobject_uevent() does nothing.
