Adding David Herrmann and Andrew de los Reyes to Cc, as David introduced
the semaphore originally and Andrew split it in two.

Your conversion looks entirely safe to me, as the driver_lock follows
the rules for a mutex, and therefore should not be a full semaphore.

However, I think we can simply remove it altogether, as the only thing
it does is to prevent a concurrent hid_device_probe and
hid_device_remove on the same device, and the driver core code
should already protect us from doing that.

driver_input_lock is still needed to block the remove function during
hid_input_report (otherwise it could be a simple flag), but I suspect
that could also be done with a mutex.
