It does not fix the problem actually. It is preferable to revert the
commit 1851799e1d29.

The cancel delayed work sync takes the mutex while a cat
/sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp happens which takes the mutex also
and at the same moment a thermal_zone_device_update() call is done in
the workqueue context. This one blocks because cancel_delayed_work_sync
is owning the lock which in turn waits for the work to end.

IMO, that deserves a deeper investigation with the mutex. Probably the
fix would be to refcount the thermal zone device and see if we can get
rid of the mutex in some places. If the refcounting is used, the
function thermal_zone_device_unregister() will be called with the
guarantee nobody will use it and the mutex can be removed.
