Subject: [PATCH 1/1] hwmon: (ina2xx) initialize mutex before locking

From: Ahsan Hussain <ahsan_hussain@...tor.com>

Upstream commit 8d008c0c ("hwmon: (ina2xx) Make calibration register
value fixed"), makes ina2xx_set_shunt() call mutex_lock on an
un-initialized mutex. Initialize it prior so we don't get a NULL pointer
dereference error.

Fixes: 8d008c0c ("hwmon: (ina2xx) Make calibration register value fixed")
