usbip_sockfd_store() is invoked when user requests attach (import)
detach (unimport) usb gadget device from usbip host. vhci_hcd sends
import request and usbip_sockfd_store() exports the device if it is
free for export.

Export and unexport are governed by local state and shared state
- Shared state (usbip device status, sockfd) - sockfd and Device
  status are used to determine if stub should be brought up or shut
  down. Device status is shared between host and client.
- Local state (tcp_socket, rx and tx thread task_struct ptrs)
  A valid tcp_socket controls rx and tx thread operations while the
  device is in exported state.
- While the device is exported, device status is marked used and socket,
  sockfd, and thread pointers are valid.

Export sequence (stub-up) includes validating the socket and creating
receive (rx) and transmit (tx) threads to talk to the client to provide
access to the exported device. rx and tx threads depends on local and
shared state to be correct and in sync.

Unexport (stub-down) sequence shuts the socket down and stops the rx and
tx threads. Stub-down sequence relies on local and shared states to be
in sync.

There are races in updating the local and shared status in the current
stub-up sequence resulting in crashes. These stem from starting rx and
tx threads before local and global state is updated correctly to be in

1. Doesn't handle kthread_create() error and saves invalid ptr in local
   state that drives rx and tx threads.
2. Updates tcp_socket and sockfd,  starts stub_rx and stub_tx threads
   before updating usbip_device status to SDEV_ST_USED. This opens up a
   race condition between the threads and usbip_sockfd_store() stub up
   and down handling.

Fix the above problems:
- Stop using kthread_get_run() macro to create/start threads.
- Create threads and get task struct reference.
- Add kthread_create() failure handling and bail out.
- Hold usbip_device lock to update local and shared states after
  creating rx and tx threads.
- Update usbip_device status to SDEV_ST_USED.
- Update usbip_device tcp_socket, sockfd, tcp_rx, and tcp_tx
- Start threads after usbip_device (tcp_socket, sockfd, tcp_rx, tcp_tx,
  and status) is complete.

Credit goes to syzbot and Tetsuo Handa for finding and root-causing the
kthread_get_run() improper error handling problem and others. This is a
hard problem to find and debug since the races aren't seen in a normal
case. Fuzzing forces the race window to be small enough for the
kthread_get_run() error path bug and starting threads before updating the
local and shared state bug in the stub-up sequence.
