The mutex lock at rc_register_device() was added by commit 08aeb7c9a42a
("[media] rc: add locking to fix register/show race").

It is meant to avoid race issues when trying to open a sysfs file while
the RC register didn't complete.

Adding a lock there causes troubles, as detected by the Kernel lock
debug instrumentation at the Kernel:

    ======================================================
    [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
    4.5.0-rc3+ #46 Not tainted
    -------------------------------------------------------
    systemd-udevd/2681 is trying to acquire lock:
     (s_active#171){++++.+}, at: [<ffffffff8171a115>] kernfs_remove_by_name_ns+0x45/0xa0

    but task is already holding lock:
     (&dev->lock){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffffa0724def>] rc_register_device+0xb2f/0x1450 [rc_core]

    which lock already depends on the new lock.

    the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

    other info that might help us debug this:

     Possible unsafe locking scenario:

           CPU0                    CPU1
           ----                    ----
      lock(&dev->lock);
                                   lock(s_active#171);
                                   lock(&dev->lock);
      lock(s_active#171);

     *** DEADLOCK ***

    3 locks held by systemd-udevd/2681:
     #0:  (&dev->mutex){......}, at: [<ffffffff81ce8933>] __driver_attach+0xa3/0x160
     #1:  (&dev->mutex){......}, at: [<ffffffff81ce8941>] __driver_attach+0xb1/0x160
     #2:  (&dev->lock){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffffa0724def>] rc_register_device+0xb2f/0x1450 [rc_core]

In this specific case, some error happened during device init,
causing IR to be disabled.

Let's fix it by adding a var that will tell when the device is
initialized. Any calls before that will return a -EINVAL.

That should prevent the race issues.
