rtlwifi: Fix locking problem introduces with commit 6539306b

When I tested commit 6539306b, I did not notice that loading an out-of-tree
module turns off lockdep testing in kernel 3.2. For that reason, I missed
the kernel WARNING shown below:

The solution fixes the warning by partially reverting commit 6539306b.
