Subject: [PATCH 3.8 093/116] ALSA: control: Don't access controls outside of protected regions

3.8.13.27 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Lars-Peter Clausen <lars@...afoo.de>

commit fd9f26e4eca5d08a27d12c0933fceef76ed9663d upstream.

A control that is visible on the card->controls list can be freed at any time.
This means we must not access any of its memory while not holding the
controls_rw_lock. Otherwise we risk a use after free access.
