net, vortex: fix lockup

Ingo Molnar reported:

-tip testing found that Johannes Berg's "softirq: remove irqs_disabled
warning from local_bh_enable" enhancement to lockdep triggers a new
warning on an old testbox that uses 3c59x vortex and netlogging:

looking at the driver I think the bug is real and the fix actually
is trivial.

vp->lock is also taken in hardware IRQ context, so we _have_ to always
use irqsafe locking. As we run in a timer with IRQs disabled,
we can simply use spin_lock.
