lock struct_mutex in i915_dma_cleanup()

Hi Benny,

Can you give the attached patch a go?

drm_irq_uninstall() has to be called with struct_mutex not held and intel_cleanup_ring_buffer() has to be called with struct_mutex held.  That bit is straight forward.

I don't know about i915_free_hws() but I think we don't needed to hold struct_mutex for that.

I don't have the actual hardware myself, so I haven't tested this.

That did the trick.
Booted with this patch and I have not seen the crash.
