[PATCH 4.4 03/73] scsi: vmw_pscsi: Fix use-after-free in pvscsi_queue_lck()

commit 240b4cc8fd5db138b675297d4226ec46594d9b3b upstream.

Once we unlock adapter->hw_lock in pvscsi_queue_lck() nothing prevents just
queued scsi_cmnd from completing and freeing the request. Thus cmd->cmnd[0]
dereference can dereference already freed request leading to kernel crashes
or other issues (which one of our customers observed). Store cmd->cmnd[0]
in a local variable before unlocking adapter->hw_lock to fix the issue.
