Subject: [PATCH] Bluetooth: hci_ldisc: Fix another race when closing the tty.

The following race condition still existed:

         P1                                P2
  cancel_work_sync()
                                     hci_uart_tx_wakeup()
                                     hci_uart_write_work()
                                     hci_uart_dequeue()
  clear_bit(HCI_UART_PROTO_READY)
  hci_unregister_dev(hdev)
  hci_free_dev(hdev)
  hu->proto->close(hu)
  kfree(hu)
                                     access to hdev and hu

Cancelling the work after clearing the HCI_UART_PROTO_READY bit avoids
this as any hci_uart_tx_wakeup() issued after the flag is cleared will
detect that and not schedule further work.
