Subject: [PATCH 2/4][TG3]: Fix race condition when calling
 register_netdev().

[TG3]: Fix race condition when calling register_netdev().

Hot-plug scripts can call tg3_open() as soon as register_netdev() is
called in tg3_init_one().  We need to call pci_set_drvdata() before
register_netdev(), and netif_carrier_off() needs to be moved to
tg3_open() to avoid race conditions.
