Yes, but that doesn't matter.

I disagree - as the lockdep warning says:

What it needs is to actually correctly go through initializing the work
at least once.

Without more information, I can't really say what's going on, but I
assume that something is failing and p54_unregister_leds() is getting
invoked without p54_init_leds() having been invoked, so essentially
it's trying to flush a work that was never initialized?

INIT_DELAYED_WORK() does, after all, initialize the lockdep map
properly via __INIT_WORK().
