cfg80211: fix potential deadlock in regulatory

commit fe20b39 upstream.

reg_timeout_work() calls restore_regulatory_settings() which
takes cfg80211_mutex.

reg_set_request_processed() already holds cfg80211_mutex
before calling cancel_delayed_work_sync(reg_timeout),
so it might deadlock.

Call the async cancel_delayed_work instead, in order
to avoid the potential deadlock.

This is the relevant lockdep warning:

cfg80211: Calling CRDA for country: XX

======================================================
[ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
3.4.0-rc5-wl+ #26 Not tainted
-------------------------------------------------------
kworker/0:2/1391 is trying to acquire lock:
 (cfg80211_mutex){+.+.+.}, at: [<bf28ae00>] restore_regulatory_settings+0x34/0x418 [cfg80211]

but task is already holding lock:
 ((reg_timeout).work){+.+...}, at: [<c0059e94>] process_one_work+0x1f0/0x480

which lock already depends on the new lock.

the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

other info that might help us debug this:

Chain exists of:
  cfg80211_mutex --> reg_mutex --> (reg_timeout).work

 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  lock((reg_timeout).work);
                               lock(reg_mutex);
                               lock((reg_timeout).work);
  lock(cfg80211_mutex);
