Ugh. This is getting really ugly.

Can we just fix it by
- getting rid of INLINE_SPIN_UNLOCK entirely

- replacing it with UNINLINE_SPIN_UNLOCK instead with the reverse
meaning, and no "def_bool" at all, just a simple

config UNINLINE_SPIN_UNLOCK
bool

- make the various people who want to uninline the spinlocks (like
spinlock debugging, paravirt etc) all just do

select UNINLINE_SPIN_UNLOCK

because quite frankly, the whole spinunlock inlining logic is
*already* unreadable, and you just made it worse.
