RDMA/rxe: Close a race after ib_register_device
Since rxe allows unregistration from other threads the rxe pointer can become invalid any moment after ib_register_driver returns. This could cause a user triggered use after free. Add another driver callback to be called right after the device becomes registered to complete any device setup required post-registration. This callback has enough core locking to prevent the device from becoming unregistered. Signed-off-by: Jason Gunthorpe <jgg@mellanox.com>
