pcmcia: remove pcmcia_add_device_lock
As all cards to pcmcia_device_add() are already locked by skt_mutex, and the critical sections inside this function are further protected by ops_mutex, there's no need to keep a third lock around. Therfore, remove pcmcia_add_device_lock. Signed-off-by: Dominik Brodowski <linux@dominikbrodowski.net>
