timers: Use del_timer_sync() even on UP

del_timer_sync() is assumed to be pointless on uniprocessor systems and can
be mapped to del_timer() because in theory del_timer() can never be invoked
while the timer callback function is executed.

This is not entirely true because del_timer() can be invoked from interrupt
context and therefore hit in the middle of a running timer callback.

Contrary to that del_timer_sync() is not allowed to be invoked from
interrupt context unless the affected timer is marked with TIMER_IRQSAFE.
del_timer_sync() has proper checks in place to detect such a situation.

Give up on the UP optimization and make del_timer_sync() unconditionally
