I assume you plan to merge the whole series together. I don't object
to that, but I don't know enough to be able to formally ack this.

It would be useful to include a tiny bit more detail in the changelog.
The spin_is_locked() documentation doesn't mention anything about
differences with respect to the lock being held by self vs by someone
else, so I can't tell where the confusion arises.
