Subject: [PATCH v1 1/4] coresight: etm4x: Add lock for reading virtual context ID comparator

When read the virtual context ID comparator value via sysfs node, the
driver firstly reads out the index, then reads the comparator value
based on index.

This patch adds the spinlock to protect the atomicity for up two steps.
