ALSA: timer: Fix race between read and ioctl
The read from ALSA timer device, the function snd_timer_user_tread(), may access to an uninitialized struct snd_timer_user fields when the read is concurrently performed while the ioctl like snd_timer_user_tselect() is invoked. We have already fixed the races among ioctls via a mutex, but we seem to have forgotten the race between read vs ioctl. This patch simply applies (more exactly extends the already applied range of) tu->ioctl_lock in snd_timer_user_tread() for closing the race window.
