xen: save previous spinlock when blocking
A spinlock can be interrupted while spinning, so make sure we preserve the previous lock of interest if we're taking a lock from within an interrupt handler. We also need to deal with the case where the blocking path gets interrupted between testing to see if the lock is free and actually blocking. If we get interrupted there and end up in the state where the lock is free but the irq isn't pending, then we'll block indefinitely in the hypervisor. This fix is to make sure that any nested lock-takers will always leave the irq pending if there's any chance the outer lock became free.
