ALSA: rawmidi: fix oops (use after free) when unloading a driver module
When a driver module is unloaded and the last still open file is a raw MIDI device, the card and its devices will be actually freed in the snd_card_file_remove() call when that file is closed. Afterwards, rmidi and rmidi->card point into freed memory, so the module pointer is likely to be garbage. (This was introduced by commit 9a1b64caac82aa02cb74587ffc798e6f42c6170a.)
