[ Upstream commit bf5a6b4c474c589244dc25ee1af2c3c829228ef8 ]

This patch fixes the problem of the spin locks, originally
meant for the netpoll path of hns driver, causing deadlock in
the normal NAPI poll path. The issue happened due to the presence
of the stray leftover spin lock code related to the netpoll,
whose support was earlier removed from the HNS[1], got activated
due to enabling of NET_POLL_CONTROLLER switch.

Earlier background:
The netpoll handling code originally had this bug(as identified
by Marc Zyngier[2]) of wrong spin lock API being used which did
not disable the interrupts and hence could cause locking issues.
i.e. if the lock were first acquired in context to thread like
'ip' util and this lock if ever got later acquired again in
context to the interrupt context like TX/RX (Interrupts could
always pre-empt the lock holding task and acquire the lock again)
and hence could cause deadlock.

Proposed Solution:
1. If the netpoll was enabled in the HNS driver, which is not
   right now, we could have simply used spin_[un]lock_irqsave()
2. But as netpoll is disabled, therefore, it is best to get rid
   of the existing locks and stray code for now. This should
   solve the problem reported by Marc.
