    hwmon: Simplify the locking model of two drivers · 7f999aa7

    Many hardware monitoring drivers use two different mutexes, one to
    protect their per-device data structure, and one to protect the
    access to the device registers. These mutexes are essentially
    redundant, as the drivers are transfering values between the device
    registers and the data cache, so they almost always end up holding
    both mutexes at the same time. Using a single mutex will make the
    code more simple and faster.
    
    I am changing only two of the affected drivers here, the authors
    of the other affected drivers are welcome to submit similar patches
    if they want.
