Subject: CVE-2024-39464: media: v4l: async: Fix notifier list entry init


In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

media: v4l: async: Fix notifier list entry init

struct v4l2_async_notifier has several list_head members, but only
waiting_list and done_list are initialized. notifier_entry was kept
'zeroed' leading to an uninitialized list_head.
This results in a NULL-pointer dereference if csi2_async_register() fails,
e.g. node for remote endpoint is disabled, and returns -ENOTCONN.
The following calls to v4l2_async_nf_unregister() results in a NULL
pointer dereference.
Add the missing list head initializer.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2024-39464 to this issue.

release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
