Subject: [PATCH] radeon kms: fix uninitialised hotplug work usage in

commit 27c505ca84e164ec66ad55dcf3f5befaac83f10a upstream.

Commit a01c34f72e7cd2624570818f579b5ab464f93de2 (radeon kms: do not
flush uninitialized hotplug work) moved work initialisation phase to
the last step of radeon_irq_kms_init(). Meelis Roos reported that this
causes problems on his machine because drm_irq_install() uses hotplug
work on r100.

hotplug work flushed in radeon_irq_kms_fini(), with two possible cases:
-- radeon_irq_kms_fini() call after successful radeon_irq_kms_init()
-- radeon_irq_kms_fini() call after unsuccessful (or not called at all)

The latter one causes flush work on uninitialised hotplug work. Move
work initialisation before drm_irq_install(), but keep existing agreement
to flush hotplug work in radeon_irq_kms_fini() only for `irq.installed'
(successful radeon_irq_kms_init()) case.
