Subject: [PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 43/80] ALSA: seq-dummy: remove deadlock-causing events on close

3.13.11-ckt17 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Clemens Ladisch <clemens@...isch.de>

commit 0767e95bb96d7fdddcd590fb809e6975d93aebc5 upstream.

When the last subscriber to a "Through" port has been removed, the
subscribed destination ports might still be active, so it would be
wrong to send "all sounds off" and "reset controller" events to them.
The proper place for such a shutdown would be the closing of the actual
MIDI port (and close_substream() in rawmidi.c already can do this).

This also fixes a deadlock when dummy_unuse() tries to send events to
its own port that is already locked because it is being freed.
