video: sm501fb: Early initialization of mm_lock mutex.
Commit 537a1bf059fa312355696fa6db80726e655e7f17 (fbdev: add mutex for fb_mmap locking) introduces a ->mm_lock mutex for protecting smem assignments. Unfortunately in the case of sm501fb these happen quite early in the initialization code, well before the mutex_init() that takes place in register_framebuffer(), leading to: Badness at kernel/mutex.c:207 Pid : 1, Comm: swapper CPU : 0 Not tainted (2.6.31-rc1-00284-g529ba0d-dirty #2273) PC is at __mutex_lock_slowpath+0x72/0x1bc PR is at __mutex_lock_slowpath+0x66/0x1bc ... matroxfb appears to have the same issue and has solved it with an early mutex_init(), so we do the same for sm501fb.
