Subject: [PATCH] Drivers: hv: vmbus: Add mutex lock to channel show functions

The channel level "_show" functions are vulnerable to race conditions.
Add a mutex lock and unlock around the call to the channel level "_show"
functions in vmbus_chan_attr_show().

This problem was discussed here: https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/10/18/830
