Subject[PATCH 3.16 018/134] USB: Proper handling of Race Condition when two USB class drivers try to call init_usb_class simultaneously
3.16.47-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Ajay Kaher <ajay.kaher@samsung.com>

commit 2f86a96be0ccb1302b7eee7855dbee5ce4dc5dfb upstream.

There is race condition when two USB class drivers try to call
init_usb_class at the same time and leads to crash.
code path: probe->usb_register_dev->init_usb_class

To solve this, mutex locking has been added in init_usb_class() and
destroy_usb_class().

As pointed by Alan, removed "if (usb_class)" test from destroy_usb_class()
because usb_class can never be NULL there.
