I'm not personally convinced *_poll is any clearer really, I would if
this is vague prefer longer more obvious names but that's just me.

Because spin_is_locked is used in quite a few places I would leave
that one alone for now --- I'm not saying we can't change this name,
but it should be a separate issue IMO.

Because rwlock_is_locked isn't used in many places changing that isn't
a big deal.

As a compromise I have the following patch in my quilt tree based upon
what a few people have said in this thread already.  This is again the
"-CURRENT bk" tree as of a few minutes ago and seems to be working as
expected.

  * i386: rename spinlock_t -> lock to slock to catch possible
    macro abuse problems

  * i386, ia64: rename rwlock_is_locked to rwlock_write_locked as this
    is IMO a better name

  * i386, ia64: add rwlock_read_locked (if people are OK with these, I
    can do the other architectures)

  * generic: fix kernel/exit.c to use rwlock_write_locked

  * generic: fix kernel/spinlock.c

Comments?
