Good point and thanks for sharing info.

The patch you mentioned can allow to read sysrq chars without
acquiring port lock.

I was deliberately to add the case for "port->sysrq" in the function
__msm_console_write() when I prepared this patch.

Let's see the issue obersved: when the UART drive is deadlock by any
reason, when sent break + h to test system is alive or not, sysrq
tries to ouput log by calling __msm_console_write(), it tries to
acquire console's spinlock but also run into deadlock; finally it
doesn't have chance to output log for sysrq.

P.s. Sorry my long late and didn't follow good practice to reply
quickly due worked on other works.

Thanks,
Leo Yan
