Subject[PATCH 2/4] scsi: pmcraid: fix lock imbalance in pmcraid_reset_reload()
sparse found a bug that has always been present since the driver
was merged:

drivers/scsi/pmcraid.c:2353:12: warning: context imbalance in 'pmcraid_reset_reload' - different lock contexts for basic block

This adds the missing unlock at the end of the function. I could
not figure out if this will happen in practice, but I could not
prove that it doesn't happen, so to be on the safe side, let's
backport this fix.

Fixes: 89a368104150 ("[SCSI] pmcraid: PMC-Sierra MaxRAID driver to support 6Gb/s SAS RAID controller")
