There is one more way to address this, probably better: instead of checking the
temperature right away in acpi_thermal_notify(), queue that on acpi_thermal_pm_queue
and so only if another thermal check is not pending.

This way there will be at most one temperature check coming from
acpi_thermal_notify() queued up at any time which should prevent the
build-up of work items from taking place.

So something like this:
