Bluetooth: Remove useless flush_work() causing lockdep warnings

The calls to flush_work() are pointless in a single thread workqueue
and they are actually causing a lockdep warning.

[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.30-rc6-02911-gbb803cfb #16
bluetooth/2518 is trying to acquire lock:
 (bluetooth){+.+.+.}, at: [<c0130c14>] flush_work+0x28/0xb0

but task is already holding lock:
 (bluetooth){+.+.+.}, at: [<c0130424>] worker_thread+0x149/0x25e

other info that might help us debug this:
2 locks held by bluetooth/2518:
 #0:  (bluetooth){+.+.+.}, at: [<c0130424>] worker_thread+0x149/0x25e
 #1:  (&conn->work_del){+.+...}, at: [<c0130424>] worker_thread+0x149/0x25e
