Subject[PATCH for review] [19/48] i386: add cpu_relax() to cmos_lock()
Date

From: Andreas Mohr <andi@lisas.de>

Add cpu_relax() to cmos_lock() inline function for faster operation on SMT
CPUs and less power consumption on others in case of lock contention (which
probably doesn't happen too often, so admittedly this patch is not too
exciting).
