The driver_override implementation is susceptible to a race condition
when different threads are reading vs storing a different driver
override.  Add locking to avoid this race condition.

Cfr. commits 6265539776a0810b ("driver core: platform: fix race
condition with driver_override") and 9561475db680f714 ("PCI: Fix race
condition with driver_override").

Fixes: 3cf385713460eb2b ("ARM: 8256/1: driver coamba: add device binding path 'driver_override'")

what is the status of this patch? We'd like to get it into the android
common branches to fix possible double free.

Thanks for your interest!

So far this patch (and the 3 others in the series) haven't received any
comments. If someone sends a Acked-by or Reviewed-by, I can submit them
to RMK's patch system.

Thanks!
