USB: HWA: fix device probe failure
This patch fixes a race condition that caused the HWA_HC interface probe function to occasionally fail. The HWA_HC would attempt to register itself with the HWA_RC by searching for a uwb_rc class device with the same parent device ptr. If the probe function for the HWA_RC interface had yet to run, the uwb_rc class device would not have been created causing the look up to fail and the HWA_HC probe function to return an error causing the device to be unusable. The fix is for the HWA to delay registering with the HWA_RC until receiving the command from userspace to start the wireless channel. It is the responsibility of userspace to ensure that the uwb_rc class device has been created before starting the HWA channel.
