Subject[PATCH 1/3] [media] cx88: protect per-device driver list with device lock
The BKL conversion of this family of drivers seems to have gone wrong.
Opening cx88-blackbird will deadlock. Various other uses of the
sub-device and driver lists appear to be subject to race conditions.

For example: various functions access drvlist without a relevant
lock held, which will race against removal of drivers. Let's
start with that --- clean up by consistently protecting dev->drvlist
with dev->core->lock, noting driver functions that require the device
lock to be held or not held.

The only goal is to make the semantics clearer in preparation for
other changes. There are still some relevant races (noted in
comments) and the deadlock noticed by Andi remains; later patches
will address that.
