this is v2, hopefully without any build issues. The changes are the same
as before, just the warning reported by kbuild test robot about unused
variables have been fixed. And, I added one more patch with some

I recently found my system locking up under some conditions. I dug
through the code a bit and the result is this collections of various
changes. Some of it may not be required and has just been created out of
half-baked theories and re-reading the documentation. The actual failing
scenarios seem to be:
 - RX IRQ conditions are handled while the receiver is disabled, leaving
   the driver in an infinite loop
 - console_put_char seems to be interrupted by uart_shutdown disabling
   the transmitter while/just before printing

I.e. overall I tried to serialize all operations using the port lock to
avoid such interaction.

  tty: xuartps: Beautify read-modify writes
  tty: xuartps: Use spinlock to serialize HW access
  tty: xuartps: Always enable transmitter in start_tx
  tty: xuartps: Clear interrupt status register in shutdown
  tty: xuartps: Improve startup function
  tty: xuartps: Keep lock for whole ISR
