serial: amba-pl011: lock console writes against interrupts
Protect against pl011_console_write() and the interrupt for the console UART running concurrently on different CPUs. Otherwise the console_write could spin for a long time waiting for the UART to become not busy, while the other CPU continuously services UART interrupts and keeps the UART busy. The checks for sysrq and oops_in_progress are taken from 8250.c.
