Similar to -v2 in that it rewrites spin_unlock_wait() for all.
The new spin_unlock_wait() provides ACQUIRE semantics to match the RELEASE of
the spin_unlock() we waited for and thereby ensure we can fully observe its
This fixes a number (pretty much all) spin_unlock_wait() users.
This series pulls in the smp_cond_acquire() rewrite because it introduces a lot
of new users of it. All simple spin_unlock_wait() implementations end up being
New in this series; apart from the fixes from the last posting (s390,tile),
is that it moves smp_cond_load_acquire() and friends into asm-generic/barrier.h
such that architectures that explicitly do not do load speculation (tile)
can override smp_acquire__after_ctrl_dep().
I'm planning on queuing these patches for 4.8.
