staging: comedi: bug-fix NULL pointer dereference on failed attach
Commit dcd7b8bd63cb81c5b973bf86510ca3c80bbbd162 ("staging: comedi: put module _after_ detach" by myself) reversed a couple of calls in `comedi_device_attach()` when recovering from an error returned by the low-level driver's 'attach' handler. Unfortunately, that introduced a NULL pointer dereference bug as `dev->driver` is NULL after the call to `comedi_device_detach()`. We still have a pointer to the low-level comedi driver structure in the `driv` variable, so use that instead.
