[PATCH 4.14 62/64] parisc: Add atomic64_set_release() define to avoid CPU soft lockups

commit be6577af0cef934ccb036445314072e8cb9217b9 upstream.

Stalls are quite frequent with recent kernels. I enabled
CONFIG_SOFTLOCKUP_DETECTOR and I caught the following stall:

watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 22s! [cc1:22803]

The code was stuck in this loop in d_alloc_parallel:

4037d414: 0e 00 10 dc ldd 0(r16),ret0
4037d418: c7 fc 5f ed bb,< ret0,1f,4037d414 <d_alloc_parallel+0x384>
4037d41c: 08 00 02 40 nop

This is the inner loop of bit_spin_lock which is called by hlist_bl_unlock in

static inline void bit_spin_lock(int bitnum, unsigned long *addr)
* Assuming the lock is uncontended, this never enters
* the body of the outer loop. If it is contended, then
* within the inner loop a non-atomic test is used to
* busywait with less bus contention for a good time to
* attempt to acquire the lock bit.
#if defined(CONFIG_SMP) || defined(CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK)
while (unlikely(test_and_set_bit_lock(bitnum, addr))) {
do {
} while (test_bit(bitnum, addr));

After consideration, I realized that we must be losing bit unlocks.
Then, I noticed that we missed defining atomic64_set_release().
Adding this define fixes the stalls in bit operations.
