[PATCH] i2c: Prevent deadlock on i2c client registration
Delay the call to adapter->client_register() until after we are certain that the client registration is a success. At this point the client is fully initialized and we no longer hold the adapter->clist mutex, so this should prevent the deadlocks if the client_register() callback needs to take that mutex too, as is the case for the bttv driver. This fixes bug #7234. Signed-off-by: Jean Delvare <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
