I think the mutex_lock is OK. If you follow the logic in
kernel/module.c:init_module(), the module init function must complete
_before_ consumers of external symbols (such as ledtrig_cpu) can
proceed. Really, that only makes sense. Otherwise module startup would
be impossibly racy.

Therefore, ledtrig_cpu() cannot be called before ledtrig_cpu_init()
completes.
