Subject[RESEND PATCH] soc: qcom: smp2p: Safely acquire spinlock without IRQs
smp2p_update_bits() should disable interrupts when it acquires its
spinlock. This is important because without the _irqsave, a priority
inversion can occur.

This function is called both with interrupts enabled in
qcom_q6v5_request_stop(), and with interrupts disabled in
ipa_smp2p_panic_notifier(). IRQ handling of spinlocks should be
consistent to avoid the panic notifier deadlocking because it's
sitting on the thread that's already got the lock via _request_stop().

Found via lockdep.
