From: Santosh Nayak <santoshprasadnayak at gmail.com>

In s2250_probe(), If locking attempt is interrupted by a signal then
it should return -EINTR after unregistering audio device and making free
the allocated memory.

At present, if locking is interrupted by signal it will display message
"initialized successfully" and return success.  This is wrong.
