Subject: [PATCH 1/1]: powerpc: block interrupts when updating TIDR

clear_thread_tidr() is called in interrupt context as a part of delayed
put of the task structure (i.e as a part of timer interrupt). To prevent
a deadlock, block interrupts when holding vas_thread_id_lock to set/
clear TIDR for a task.
