3.11.10.10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Loic Poulain <loic.poulain at intel.com>

commit f8fd1b0350d3a4581125f5eda6528f5a2c5f9183 upstream.

__dma_tx_complete is not protected against concurrent
call of serial8250_tx_dma. it can lead to circular tail
index corruption or parallel call of serial_tx_dma on the
same data portion.

This patch fixes this issue by holding the port lock.
