[PATCH v1] thermal: core: Fix use-after-free in thermal_cooling_device_destroy_sysfs

From: Dmitry Osipenko
Date: Mon Aug 13 2018 - 13:15:53 EST

This patch fixes use-after-free that was detected by KASAN. The bug is
triggered on a CPUFreq driver module unload by freeing 'cdev' on device
unregister and then using the freed structure during of the cdev's sysfs
data destruction. The solution is to unregister the sysfs at first, then
destroy sysfs data and finally release the cooling device.
