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

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

From: Tejun Heo <tj at kernel.org>

commit 3bec60d511179853138836ae6e1b61fe34d9235f upstream.

fw_device_init() didn't check whether the allocated minor number isn't
too large.  Fail if it goes overflows MINORBITS.
