Subject: [PATCH 1/1] pwm: meson: use the spin-lock only to protect register modifications

Holding the spin-lock for all of the code in meson_pwm_apply() can
result in a "BUG: scheduling while atomic". This can happen because
clk_get_rate() (which is called from meson_pwm_calc()) may sleep.
Only hold the spin-lock when modifying registers to solve this.

The reason why we need a spin-lock in the driver is because the
REG_MISC_AB register is shared between the two channels provided by one
PWM controller. The only functions where REG_MISC_AB is modified are
meson_pwm_enable() and meson_pwm_disable() so the register reads/writes
in there need to be protected by the spin-lock.

The original code also used the spin-lock to protect the values in
struct meson_pwm_channel. This could be necessary if two consumers can
use the same PWM channel. However, PWM core doesn't allow this so we
don't need to protect the values in struct meson_pwm_channel with a
lock.
