Indeed, I will change to mutex.

I agree you are right, but call mutex_lock() here will prohibit
system booting, because mutex_lock() should be called after
mutex_init().
mutex_init() is called in module_init function, which is behind some
core functions calling ledtrig_cpu() API.

I plan to introduce a flag variable for checking before calling mutex_lock here.

Thanks a lot, I will update my patch and post it again.
