Subject: [PATCH] tty: serial: meson_uart: Init port lock early

The meson UART driver triggers a lockdep splat at boot time, due
to the new expectation that the driver has to initialize the
per-port spinlock itself.

It remains unclear why a double initialization of the port
spinlock is a desirable outcome, but in the meantime let's
fix the splat.
