Subject: [PATCH v2] USB: gadget: f_hid: fix deadlock in f_hidg_write()

In f_hidg_write() the write_spinlock is acquired before calling
usb_ep_queue() which causes a deadlock when dummy_hcd is being used.
This is because dummy_queue() callbacks into f_hidg_req_complete() which
tries to acquire the same spinlock. This is (part of) the backtrace when
the deadlock occurs:

  0xffffffffc06b1410 in f_hidg_req_complete
  0xffffffffc06a590a in usb_gadget_giveback_request
  0xffffffffc06cfff2 in dummy_queue
  0xffffffffc06a4b96 in usb_ep_queue
  0xffffffffc06b1eb6 in f_hidg_write
  0xffffffff8127730b in __vfs_write
  0xffffffff812774d1 in vfs_write
  0xffffffff81277725 in SYSC_write

Fix this by releasing the write_spinlock before calling usb_ep_queue()
