As reported by Steven Rostedt, e1000 has a lockdep splat added
during the recent merge window.  The issue is that
cancel_delayed_work is called while holding our private mutex.

There is no reason that I can see to hold the mutex during pci
shutdown, it was more just paranoia that I put the mutex_lock
around the call to e1000_down.

In a quick survey lots of drivers handle locking differently when
being called by the pci layer.  The assumption here is that we
don't need the mutexes' protection in this function because
the driver could not be unloaded while in the shutdown handler
which is only called at reboot or poweroff.
