Subject[PATCH v3] ttyprintk: fix a potential deadlock in interrupt context issue
Date
tpk_write()/tpk_close() could be interrupted when holding a mutex, then
in timer handler tpk_write() may be called again trying to acquire same
mutex, lead to deadlock.

Google syzbot reported this issue with CONFIG_DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP
enabled:

BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at
kernel/locking/mutex.c:938
in_atomic(): 1, irqs_disabled(): 0, non_block: 0, pid: 0, name: swapper/1
1 lock held by swapper/1/0:
...

</IRQ>

See link https://syzkaller.appspot.com/bug?extid=2eeef62ee31f9460ad65 for
more details.

Fix it by using spinlock in process context instead of mutex and having
interrupt disabled in critical section.
