pinctrl: Don't just pretend to protect pinctrl_maps, do it for real
Way back, when the world was a simpler place and there was no war, no evil, and no kernel bugs, there was just a single pinctrl lock. That was how the world was when (57291ce pinctrl: core device tree mapping table parsing support) was written. In that case, there were instances where the pinctrl mutex was already held when pinctrl_register_map() was called, hence a "locked" parameter was passed to the function to indicate that the mutex was already locked (so we shouldn't lock it again). A few years ago in (42fed7b pinctrl: move subsystem mutex to pinctrl_dev struct), we switched to a separate pinctrl_maps_mutex. ...but (oops) we forgot to re-think about the whole "locked" parameter for pinctrl_register_map(). Basically the "locked" parameter appears to still refer to whether the bigger pinctrl_dev mutex is locked, but we're using it to skip locks of our (now separate) pinctrl_maps_mutex. That's kind of a bad thing(TM). Probably nobody noticed because most of the calls to pinctrl_register_map happen at boot time and we've got synchronous device probing. ...and even cases where we're asynchronous don't end up actually hitting the race too often. ...but after banging my head against the wall for a bug that reproduced 1 out of 1000 reboots and lots of looking through kgdb, I finally noticed this. Anyway, we can now safely remove the "locked" parameter and go back to a war-free, evil-free, and kernel-bug-free world.
