staging: lirc: fix mismatch in mutex lock-unlock in imon_probe
If kzalloc failed for allocation of context, goto alloc_status_switch leads to unlock of unacquired driver_lock. The patch moves mutex_lock(&driver_lock) before allocation of context. Found by Linux Driver Verification project (linuxtesting.org). Signed-off-by: Alexey Khoroshilov <khoroshilov@ispras.ru> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
