Right now, the lock schema for media_device struct is messy,
since sometimes, it is protected via a spin lock, while, for
media graph traversal, it is protected by a mutex.

Solve this conflict by always using a mutex.

As a side effect, this prevents a bug when the media notifiers
is called at atomic context, while running the notifier callback:
