There is a possibility of deadlock in this API,
as same spinlock is tried to be acquired in nested manner.

If the lcore that is stopping the timer is different from the lcore
that owns the timer, the timer list lock is acquired in timer_del(),
even if local_is_locked is true. Because the same lock was already
acquired in rte_timer_stop_all(), the thread will hang.

This patch removes the acquisition of nested lock.

Fixes: 821c51267bcd63a ("timer: add function to stop all timers in a list")
