    ACPI / Battery: Resolve the race condition in the sysfs_remove_battery()

fixed BUG https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35642 , but as a side
effect made lockdep unhappy with sysfs_remove_battery():

This patch introduces separate lock to struct acpi_battery to
grab in sysfs_remove_battery() instead of battery->lock.
So fix by Lan Tianyu is still there, we just grab independent lock.
