[PATCH v6 2/2] firmware_loader: fix use-after-free in firmware_fallback_sysfs

This use-after-free happens when a fw_priv object has been freed but
hasn't been removed from the pending list (pending_fw_head). The next
time fw_load_sysfs_fallback tries to insert into the list, it ends up
accessing the pending_list member of the previoiusly freed fw_priv.

The root cause here is that all code paths that abort the fw load
don't delete it from the pending list. For example:

	_request_firmware()
	  -> fw_abort_batch_reqs()
	      -> fw_state_aborted()

To fix this, delete the fw_priv from the list in __fw_set_state() if
the new state is DONE or ABORTED. This way, all aborts will remove
the fw_priv from the list. Accordingly, remove calls to list_del_init
that were being made before calling fw_state_(aborted|done).

Also, in fw_load_sysfs_fallback, don't add the fw_priv to the pending
list if it is already aborted. Instead, just jump out and return early.
