Subject[PATCH] HID: steam: fix deadlock with input devices.
Date
When using this driver with the wireless dongle and some usermode
program that monitors every input device (acpid, for example), while
another usermode client opens and closes the low-level device
repeadedly, the system eventually deadlocks.

The reason is that steam_input_register_device() must not be called with
the mutex held, because the input subsystem has its own synchronization
that clashes with this one: it is possible that steam_input_open() is
called before input_register_device() returns, and since
steam_input_open() needs to lock the mutex, it deadlocks.

However we must hold the mutex when calling any function that sends
commands to the controller. If not, random commands end up falling fail.
