bsg: fix race of bsg_open and bsg_unregister

The existing implementation allows races between bsg_unregister and
bsg_open paths. bsg_unregister and request_queue cleanup and deletion
may start and complete right after bsg_get_device (in bsg_open path)
retrieves bsg_class_device and releases the mutex. Then bsg_open path
touches freed memory of bsg_class_device and request_queue.

One possible fix is to hold the mutex all the way through bsg_get_device
instead of releasing it after bsg_class_device retrieval.
