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.
