Fields of md(mport_dev) are set after cdev_device_add().
However, the file operation callbacks can be called after
cdev_device_add() and therefore accesses to fields of md in the
callbacks can race with the rest of the mport_cdev_add() function.

One such example is INIT_LIST_HEAD(&md->portwrites) in
mport_cdev_add(), the list is initialised after cdev_device_add().
This can race with list_add_tail(&pw_filter->md_node,&md->portwrites)
in rio_mport_add_pw_filter() which is called by unlocked_ioctl.

To avoid such data races use cdev_device_add() after initializing md.
