Subject[PATCH V2 2/4] drivers: qcom: rpmh-rsc: avoid locking in the interrupt handler
Avoid locking in the interrupt context to improve latency. Since we
don't lock in the interrupt context, it is possible that we now could
race with the DRV_CONTROL register that writes the enable register and
cleared by the interrupt handler. For fire-n-forget requests, the
interrupt may be raised as soon as the TCS is triggered and the IRQ
handler may clear the enable bit before the DRV_CONTROL is read back.

Use the non-sync variant when enabling the TCS register to avoid reading
back a value that may been cleared because the interrupt handler ran
immediately after triggering the TCS.
