I don't know why Christoph asked for these; he's usually against
obfuscating wrapper functions.

bit_spin_lock is fine in callers so please leave it at that.
Other users may not want a spinlock, or might want to use
bit_spin_is_locked, bit_spin_trylock etc.

I don't see the point of this, but if there is one it should be
documented in a different patch and propagated to other types of
lists too. I wouldn't worry about it though.
