Sending URB control messages from stack was never supported. Yet, on x86,
the stack was usually at a memory region that allows DMA transfer.

So, several drivers got it wrong. On Kernel 4.9, if VMAP_STACK=y, none of
those drivers will work, as the stack won't be on a DMA-able area anymore.

So, fix the media drivers that requre it. It should noticed that the vast
majority are at dvb-usb.

Please notice that those patches are compile-tested only.  So, I really 
appreciate if people with devices using those drivers could test and 
report if they don't break anything. I intend to send this 

PS.: I didn't verify any media driver inside staging.

Version 2:

- Added other USB drivers that are out of dvb-usb. After this series, all
  drivers will use kmalloc'ed buffers, although I won't doubt that some
  implementations may still have issues.

- Be sure that, on all places where it is using a buffer allocated at the
  dvb-usb state structs, they'll be protected by some mutex. On some
  such cases, there was already a mutex at the DVB core. So, I didn't
  need to add a new one. Thanks to Antti that reminded me about such
  need.
