    we don't implement spin_is_locked on UP either because there's no really
    usefull return value. The lock will never be taken on !SMP && !PREEMPT,
    but OTOH it's also not needed, so any assert on will give false results.
    And the assert is probably the only thing that the _is_locked routines
    could used for sanely.
