[patch 2/3] spinlock fix #2: generalize [spin|rw]lock yielding

From: Ingo Molnar <mingo_at_elte.hu>
Date: 2005-01-21 03:11:16
[patch respun with s/trylock_test/can_lock/]

--
this patch generalizes the facility of targeted lock-yielding originally
implemented for ppc64. This facility enables a virtual CPU to indicate
towards the hypervisor which other virtual CPU this CPU is 'blocked on',
and hence which CPU the hypervisor should yield the current timeslice
to, in order to make progress on releasing the lock.

On physical platforms these functions default to cpu_relax(). Since
physical platforms are in the overwhelming majority i've added the two
new functions to the new asm-generic/spinlock.h include file - here i
hope we can later on move more generic spinlock bits as well.

this patch solves the ppc64/PREEMPT functionality-regression reported by
Paul Mackerras. I only tested it on x86, Paul, would you mind to test it
on ppc64?

	Ingo
