ARCv2: guard SLC DMA ops with spinlock
SLC maintenance ops need to be serialized by software as there is no inherent buffering / quequing of aux commands. It can silently ignore a new aux operation if previous one is still ongoing (SLC_CTRL_BUSY) So gaurd the SLC op using a spin lock The spin lock doesn't seem to be contended even in heavy workloads such as iperf. On FPGA @ 75 MHz.
