Subject[PATCH 3.2 44/87] ALSA: seq: Fix race at timer setup and close
3.2.77-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de>

commit 3567eb6af614dac436c4b16a8d426f9faed639b3 upstream.

ALSA sequencer code has an open race between the timer setup ioctl and
the close of the client. This was triggered by syzkaller fuzzer, and
a use-after-free was caught there as a result.

This patch papers over it by adding a proper queue->timer_mutex lock
around the timer-related calls in the relevant code path.
