A race condition may occur if the user physically removes the pcmcia
device while calling open() for this char device node.

This is a race condition between the cm4040_open() function and the
reader_detach() function, which may eventually result in UAF.

So, add a refcount check to reader_detach() to free the "dev" structure
after the char device node is close()d.

Dear,


I fixed the wrong patch referencing "dev" after kref_put() in the previous version of the patch.

Hyunwoo Kim.
