The -rt patch triggers a lockdep warning for serial drivers if
tty_flip_buffer_push() is called with uart_port->lock locked. This never shows
up on UP kernels.

Release the port lock before calling tty_flip_buffer_push() and reacquire it
after the call.

Similar stuff was already done for few other drivers in the past, like:
