Subject[PATCH v4 2/3] qrwlock x86: Enable x86 to use queue read/write lock
Date
This patch makes the necessary changes at the x86 architecture specific
layer to enable the presence of the CONFIG_QUEUE_RWLOCK kernel option
to replace the read/write lock by the queue read/write lock.

It also enables CONFIG_ARCH_QUEUE_RWLOCK which will force the use
of queue read/write lock for x86 which tends to have the largest
NUMA machines compared with the other architectures. This patch will
improve the scalability of those large machines.
