ALSA PCM OSS layer calls the generic __snd_pcm_lib_xfer() helper for
the actual transfer of the audio data.  The xfer helper may sleep long
for waiting for the enough space becoming empty for read/write, and
it does unlock/relock for the substream lock.  This works fine, so
far, but a slight problem specific to OSS layer is that OSS layer
wraps yet more mutex (runtime->oss.params_lock) over
__snd_pcm_lib_xfer() call; so this mutex is still locked during a
possible long sleep, and it prevents the whole ioctl and other actions
applied to the given stream.

This patch adds the temporarily unlock and relock of the mutex around
__snd_pcm_lib_xfer() call in the OSS layer to be more friendly to the
concurrent accesses.  The long mutex protection itself shouldn't be a
real issue for the normal systems, and its influence appears only on
strange things like fuzzers.
