commit fb78b811422cd2d8c8605949cc4cc13618347ad5 upstream.

commit 8b9ade9f74f8a279 coming from Viresh Kumar "tty: serial: sirfsoc: drop
uart_port->lock before calling tty_flip_buffer_push()" broke sirfsoc uart
driver by knic:

Root cause:
the commit dropped uart_port->lock before calling tty_flip_buffer_push(), but in sirfsoc-uart,
sirfsoc_uart_pio_rx_chars() can be called by sirfsoc_rx_tmo_process_tl(). here uart_port->lock
has not been taken yet. so that caused unpaired lock/unlock.

Solution:
This patch is doing a quick fix for that, it adds spin_lock/unlock(&port->lock) protect to
sirfsoc_uart_pio_rx_chars() in sirfsoc_rx_tmo_process_tl() to keep spin_lock/unlock in pair.
