Subject: [PATCH] [media] au0828: fix case where STREAMOFF being called on
 stopped stream causes BUG()

commit a595c1ce4c9d572cf53513570b9f1a263d7867f2 upstream.

We weren't checking whether the resource was in use before calling
res_free(), so applications which called STREAMOFF on a v4l2 device that
wasn't already streaming would cause a BUG() to be hit (MythTV).
