locking/mutex: Enable optimistic spinning of woken waiter

This patch makes the waiter that sets the HANDOFF flag start spinning
instead of sleeping until the handoff is complete or the owner
sleeps. Otherwise, the handoff will cause the optimistic spinners to
abort spinning as the handed-off owner may not be running.
