Was this reported by nm or found by you?

The above code does not fully prevent orderly_poweroff() to be called
only once, does it?

- thermal zone 0 goes all the way in the critical path, but gets
  preempted between orderly_poweroff(true)l and power_off_triggered =
  true;, i.e., preempted right before setting to true, therefore,
  power_off_triggered still 0.
- thermal zone 1 also enters critical path, but will sleep at the
  power_off_lock, right?
- then thermal zone 0 gets the CPU again, finishes the critical path,
  unlocks poweroff_lock.
- thermal zone 1 is unblocked, and call again orderly_poweroff(true);
