Subject: [PATCH v3 21/52] x86, therm_throt.c: Remove unused therm_cpu_lock

After fixing the CPU hotplug callback registration code, the callbacks
invoked for each online CPU, during the initialization phase in
thermal_throttle_init_device(), can no longer race with the actual CPU
hotplug notifier callbacks (in thermal_throttle_cpu_callback). Hence the
therm_cpu_lock is unnecessary now. Remove it.
