USB: additional regression fix for device removal
commit ca5c485f55d326d9a23e4badd05890148aa53f74 upstream. Commit e534c5b831c8b8e9f5edee5c8a37753c808b80dc (USB: fix regression occurring during device removal) didn't go far enough. It failed to take into account that when a driver claims multiple interfaces, it may release them all at the same time. As a result, some interfaces can get released before they are unregistered, and we deadlock trying to acquire the bandwidth_mutex that we already own. This patch (asl478) handles this case by setting the "unregistering" flag on all the interfaces before removing any of them.
