drivers/misc/pti.c: give 'comm' function scope in pti_control_frame_built_and_sent()
In drivers/misc/pti.c::pti_control_frame_built_and_sent() we assign 'comm' to 'thread_name_p' if (!thread_name). The problem is that 'comm' then goes out of scope and later we use 'thread_name_p' which now refers to an out-of-scope variable. To fix that, simply move 'comm' up to have function scope.
