From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

Issuing a magic-sysrq via the PL011 causes the following lockdep splat,
which is easily reproducible under QEMU:

  | sysrq: Changing Loglevel
  | sysrq: Loglevel set to 9
  |
  | ======================================================
  | WARNING: possible circular locking dependency detected
  | 5.9.0-rc7 #1 Not tainted
  | ------------------------------------------------------
  | systemd-journal/138 is trying to acquire lock:
  | ffffab133ad950c0 (console_owner){-.-.}-{0:0}, at: console_lock_spinning_enable+0x34/0x70
  |
  | but task is already holding lock:
  | ffff0001fd47b098 (&port_lock_key){-.-.}-{2:2}, at: pl011_int+0x40/0x488
  |
  | which lock already depends on the new lock.

  [...]

  |  Possible unsafe locking scenario:
  |
  |        CPU0                    CPU1
  |        ----                    ----
  |   lock(&port_lock_key);
  |                                lock(console_owner);
  |                                lock(&port_lock_key);
  |   lock(console_owner);
  |
  |  *** DEADLOCK ***

The issue being that CPU0 takes 'port_lock' on the irq path in pl011_int()
before taking 'console_owner' on the printk() path, whereas CPU1 takes
the two locks in the opposite order on the printk() path due to setting
the "console_owner" prior to calling into into the actual console driver.

Fix this in the same way as the msm-serial driver by dropping 'port_lock'
before handling the sysrq.
