I get a slightly different OOPs and reverting
c55a6ffa6285e29f874ed403979472631ec70bff I was able to boot.
What I saw with osq_lock.c was that osq_wait_next is called for both
lock and unlock case so it might need both barriers.
The other question comes does atomic_cmpxchg_release have release
semantics when the compare fails? Right now it does not.

Thanks,
Andrew
