Why? how the above commit introduced this issue?

I am not convinced this change does what you say it does..

Imagine you have two zones about to enter critical path. thermal zone 0
first gets into critical, and at this line (btween orderly_poweroff()
and you set your flag), it gets preempted. Then thermal zone 1 also
enters the critical path, then happens to be scheduled, you essentially
end up still calling orderly_poweroff() twice, which is what this patch
is supposed to avoid.

You better simply use a lock to serialize code execution.
