Subject[37/89] x86: xen: size struct xen_spinlock to always fit in arch_spinlock_t
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: David Vrabel <david.vrabel@citrix.com>

commit 7a7546b377bdaa25ac77f33d9433c59f259b9688 upstream.

If NR_CPUS < 256 then arch_spinlock_t is only 16 bits wide but struct
xen_spinlock is 32 bits. When a spin lock is contended and
xl->spinners is modified the two bytes immediately after the spin lock
would be corrupted.

This is a regression caused by 84eb950db13ca40a0572ce9957e14723500943d6
(x86, ticketlock: Clean up types and accessors) which reduced the size
of arch_spinlock_t.

Fix this by making xl->spinners a u8 if NR_CPUS < 256. A
BUILD_BUG_ON() is also added to check the sizes of the two structures
are compatible.

In many cases this was not noticable as there would often be padding
bytes after the lock (e.g., if any of CONFIG_GENERIC_LOCKBREAK,
CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK, or CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC were enabled).

The bnx2 driver is affected. In struct bnx2, phy_lock and
indirect_lock may have no padding after them. Contention on phy_lock
would corrupt indirect_lock making it appear locked and the driver
would deadlock.
