Subject[PATCH] RT: fix spin_trylock_irq

This patch fixes a bug in spin_trylock_irq() where __spin_trylock_irq() is
picked for regular (non-raw) spinlocks instead of _spin_trylock_irq().

This results in systematic boot hangs and may have been going unnoticed
for quite some time as it only manifests (aside from a compile warning) when
booting with a NUMA config or when using the Chelsio T3 (cxgb3) driver as
these seems to be the sole users.
