[PATCH] EM28xx - replug locking cleanup


This patch simplifies the locking by moving the em28xx_init_extension() call until em28xx_usb_probe() has finished with the dev->lock mutex. It therefore makes the second and subsequent "plugging" events logically identical to the first "plugging" event when the em28xx-dvb and em28xx-alsa modules must be loaded (i.e. registered).

Basically, em28xx_usb_probe() requests that em28xx-dvb be loaded and also triggers udev to initialise the V4L2 devices. These two events are serialised by the dev->lock mutex but the order that they happen in is undefined. But this has always been the case anyway.
