[S390] mutex: Introduce arch_mutex_cpu_relax()

The spinning mutex implementation uses cpu_relax() in busy loops as a
compiler barrier. Depending on the architecture, cpu_relax() may do more
than needed in this specific mutex spin loops. On System z we also give
up the time slice of the virtual cpu in cpu_relax(), which prevents
effective spinning on the mutex.

This patch replaces cpu_relax() in the spinning mutex code with
arch_mutex_cpu_relax(), which can be defined by each architecture that
selects HAVE_ARCH_MUTEX_CPU_RELAX. The default is still cpu_relax(), so
this patch should not affect other architectures than System z for now.
