Subject: [PATCH 4.19 32/78] drivers: thermal: int340x_thermal: Fix sysfs race condition

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

------------------

[ Upstream commit 129699bb8c7572106b5bbb2407c2daee4727ccad ]

Changes since V1:
* Use dev_info instead of printk
* Use dev_warn instead of BUG_ON

Previously, sysfs_create_group was called before all initialization had
fully run - specifically, before pci_set_drvdata was called. Since the
sysctl group is visible to userspace as soon as sysfs_create_group
returns, a small window of time existed during which a process could read
from an uninitialized/partially-initialized device.

This commit moves the creation of the sysctl group to after all
initialized is completed. This ensures that it's impossible for
userspace to read from a sysctl file before initialization has fully
completed.

To catch any future regressions, I've added a check to ensure
that proc_thermal_emum_mode is never PROC_THERMAL_NONE when a process
tries to read from a sysctl file. Previously, the aforementioned race
condition could result in the 'else' branch
running while PROC_THERMAL_NONE was set,
leading to a null pointer deference.
