When async register/unregister function is invoked in certain vhost
event callbacks (e.g. vring state change), deadlock may occur due to
recursive spinlock acquire. This patch removes unnecessary spinlock
from register API and use trylock() primitive in the unregister API
to avoid deadlock.

Fixes: 78639d54563a ("vhost: introduce async enqueue registration API")
