[media] hdpvr: fix iteration over uninitialized lists in hdpvr_probe()
free_buff_list and rec_buff_list are initialized in the middle of hdpvr_probe(), but if something bad happens before that, error handling code calls hdpvr_delete(), which contains iteration over the lists (via hdpvr_free_buffers()). The patch moves the lists initialization to the beginning and by the way fixes goto label in error handling of registering videodev. Found by Linux Driver Verification project (linuxtesting.org).
