ALSA: usb-audio: Fix mutex deadlock at disconnection
The recent change for USB-audio disconnection race fixes introduced a mutex deadlock again. There is a circular dependency between chip->shutdown_rwsem and pcm->open_mutex, depicted like below, when a device is opened during the disconnection operation: A. snd_usb_audio_disconnect() -> card.c::register_mutex -> chip->shutdown_rwsem (write) -> snd_card_disconnect() -> pcm.c::register_mutex -> pcm->open_mutex B. snd_pcm_open() -> pcm->open_mutex -> snd_usb_pcm_open() -> chip->shutdown_rwsem (read) Since the chip->shutdown_rwsem protection in the case A is required only for turning on the chip->shutdown flag and it doesn't have to be taken for the whole operation, we can reduce its window in snd_usb_audio_disconnect().
