[PATCH 1/2] staging: comedi: ni_usb6501: Fix use of uninitialized mutex




If `ni6501_auto_attach()` returns an error, the core comedi module code
will call `ni6501_detach()` to clean up.  If `ni6501_auto_attach()`
successfully allocated the comedi device private data, `ni6501_detach()`
assumes that a `struct mutex mut` contained in the private data has been
initialized and uses it.  Unfortunately, there are a couple of places
where `ni6501_auto_attach()` can return an error after allocating the
device private data but before initializing the mutex, so this
assumption is invalid.  Fix it by initializing the mutex just after
allocating the private data in `ni6501_auto_attach()` before any other
errors can be retturned.  Also move the call to `usb_set_intfdata()`
just to keep the code a bit neater (either position for the call is
fine).

I believe this was the cause of the following syzbot crash report
<https://syzkaller.appspot.com/bug?extid=cf4f2b6c24aff0a3edf6>:
