If you can make it use a lockless list thing that's fine.

I'm not sure Andrew's CONFIG_ARCH_HAVE_NMI_SAFE_CMPXCHG makes much sense
for CONFIG_ARCH_HAVE_NMI=n though..

Anyway, make sure to consolidate net/rds/xlist.h and its users, having
two lockless lists is one too many.

But only if the platform has NMIs, otherwise its moot.
