      spinlock: lockbreak cleanup · 95c354fe
      Nick Piggin authored
      
      
      The break_lock data structure and code for spinlocks is quite nasty.
      Not only does it double the size of a spinlock but it changes locking to
      a potentially less optimal trylock.
      
      Put all of that under CONFIG_GENERIC_LOCKBREAK, and introduce a
      __raw_spin_is_contended that uses the lock data itself to determine whether
      there are waiters on the lock, to be used if CONFIG_GENERIC_LOCKBREAK is
      not set.
      
      Rename need_lockbreak to spin_needbreak, make it use spin_is_contended to
      decouple it from the spinlock implementation, and make it typesafe (rwlocks
      do not have any need_lockbreak sites -- why do they even get bloated up
      with that break_lock then?).
