fbmem: fix remove_conflicting_framebuffers races
When a register_framebuffer() call results in us removing old conflicting framebuffers, the new registration_lock doesn't protect that situation. And we can't just add the same locking to the function, because these functions call each other: register_framebuffer() calls remove_conflicting_framebuffers, which in turn calls unregister_framebuffer for any conflicting entry. In order to fix it, this just creates wrapper functions around all three functions and makes the versions that actually do the work be called "do_xxx()", leaving just the wrapper that gets the lock and calls the worker function. So the rule becomes simply that "do_xxxx()" has to be called with the lock held, and now do_register_framebuffer() can just call do_remove_conflicting_framebuffers(), and that in turn can call _do_unregister_framebuffer(), and there is no deadlock, and we can hold the registration lock over the whole sequence, fixing the races. It also makes error cases simpler, and fixes one situation where we would return from unregister_framebuffer() without releasing the lock, pointed out by Bruno Prémont.
