Subject[PATCH 4/4] thermal/drivers/qcom: fix lock inversion
The thermal-zone-device lock is held by core when setting trip points
and the driver takes its chip lock in the corresponding callback.

Fetching the thermal trip points using thermal_zone_get_trip() also
involves taking the thermal-zone-device lock, which means that the chip
lock can not be held when doing so.

Drop the chip lock temporarily during probe to avoid the lock inversion
that was detected by lockdep:

WARNING: possible circular locking dependency detected
6.1.0-next-20221213 #122 Not tainted
systemd-udevd/264 is trying to acquire lock:
ffff741e444a0920 (&chip->lock){+.+.}-{3:3}, at: qpnp_tm_get_temp+0xb4/0x1b0 [qcom_spmi_temp_alarm]

but task is already holding lock:
ffff741e44341618 (&tz->lock){+.+.}-{3:3}, at: thermal_zone_device_update+0x2c/0x70

which lock already depends on the new lock.
