Subject[patch 24/40] USB: usbserial - fix potential deadlock between write() and IRQ

-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>
patch acd2a847e7fee7df11817f67dba75a2802793e5d in mainline.

USB: usbserial - fix potential deadlock between write() and IRQ

usb_serial_generic_write() doesn't disable interrupts when taking port->lock,
and could therefore deadlock with usb_serial_generic_read_bulk_callback()
being called from interrupt, taking the same lock. Fix it.
