commit 0fde0a8cfd0ede7f310d6a681c8e5a7cb3e32406 upstream.

Fix:

BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/workqueue.c:2547
in_atomic(): 1, irqs_disabled(): 0, pid: 629, name: wpa_supplicant
2 locks held by wpa_supplicant/629:
 #0:  (rtnl_mutex){+.+.+.}, at: [<c08b2b84>] rtnl_lock+0x14/0x20
 #1:  (&trigger->leddev_list_lock){.+.?..}, at: [<c0867f41>] led_trigger_event+0x21/0x80
Pid: 629, comm: wpa_supplicant Not tainted 3.3.0-0.rc3.git5.1.fc17.i686

 [<f7ff3583>] ieee80211_stop_device+0x13/0x230 [mac80211]

Removing _sync is ok, because if led_on work is currently running
it will be finished before led_off work start to perform, since
they are always queued on the same mac80211 local->workqueue.
