That one. That is something I am not really sure about in the long run. On
-RT we can't try_lock() with IRQs off and that is why I removed it.
You could do the same with pl011 but you are screwed anyway because
clk_enable() will take a sleeping lock and that is a no no.

So you could stay with the try_lock because it does not solve anything.
In the long run I though about a console flag which denotes the console
as RT-IRQ save which is the case for 8250 but not for pl011 (due to
clk_enable()) so should not get on -RT into this case where it matters.

On the other hand if you oops on !RT+UP in your uart driver while
holding the lock then the try_lock will fail resulting in a lockdep
splat (because try_lock should not fail on UP). So might want take it as
a procation in that case :)

yes :)
