NET: Fix locking issues in PPP, 6pack, mkiss and strip line disciplines.

Guido Trentalancia reports:

I am trying to use the kiss driver in the Linux kernel that is being
shipped with Fedora 10 but unfortunately I get the following oops:

mkiss: AX.25 Multikiss, Hans Albas PE1AYX
mkiss: ax0: crc mode is auto.
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): ax0: link becomes ready

mkiss: ax0: Trying crc-smack
mkiss: ax0: Trying crc-flexnet

The issue was, that the locking code in mkiss was assuming it was only
ever being called in process or bh context.  Fixed by converting the
involved locking code to use irq-safe locks.

Review of other networking line disciplines shows that 6pack, both sync
and async PPP and STRIP have similar issues.  The ppp_async one is the
most interesting one as it sorts out half of the issue as far back as
