vsock: fix potential deadlock in transport->release()
Some transports (hyperv, virtio) acquire the sock lock during the .release() callback. In the vsock_stream_connect() we call vsock_assign_transport(); if the socket was previously assigned to another transport, the vsk->transport->release() is called, but the sock lock is already held in the vsock_stream_connect(), causing a deadlock reported by syzbot: INFO: task syz-executor280:9768 blocked for more than 143 seconds.
