ALSA: snd-usb: mixer: ignore -EINVAL in snd_usb_mixer_controls()
Creation of individual mixer controls may fail, but that shouldn't cause the entire mixer creation to fail. Even worse, if the mixer creation fails, that will error out the entire device probing. All the functions called by parse_audio_unit() should return -EINVAL if they find descriptors that are unsupported or believed to be malformed, so we can safely handle this error code as a non-fatal condition in snd_usb_mixer_controls(). That fixes a long standing bug which is commonly worked around by adding quirks which make the driver ignore entire interfaces. Some of them might now be unnecessary.
