For architectures that use qrwlock, I do not find one that has an
atomic_add() defined but not an atomic_or(). I guess it should be fine
by changing atomic_add() to atomic_or().

Note that the previous use of atomic_add() isn't wrong as only one
writer that is the wait_lock owner can set the waiting flag and the
flag will be cleared later on when acquiring the write lock.

Sorry, I missed the "v2" in the title.
