[PATCH] phy: sun4i-usb: Use spinlock to guard phyctl register access

The musb driver calls into this phy driver to disable/enable squelch
detection. This function was introduced in 24fe86a617c5 ("phy: sun4i-usb:
Add a sunxi specific function for setting squelch-detect"). This
function in turn calls sun4i_usb_phy_write, which uses a mutex to
guard the common access register. Unfortunately musb does this
in atomic context, which results in the following warning with lock
debugging enabled:

BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/locking/mutex.c:97

Since the register access is mmio, we can use a spinlock to guard this
specific access, rather than the mutex that guards the entire phy.
