Subject: tracing: Move mutex to protect against resetting of seq data
commit 1245800c0f96eb6ebb368593e251d66c01e61022 upstream.
The iter->seq can be reset outside the protection of the mutex. So can
reading of user data. Move the mutex up to the beginning of the function.
Fixes: d7350c3f45694 ("tracing/core: make the read callbacks reentrants")
