I originally have a Fixes tag when I was modifying the mips'
asm/spinlock.h file. After I realize that there are more files to
modify, I take that out. Anyway, the problem was exposed by Ben's
qrwlock patch. So existing stable releases should still be fine without
this patch.

Thanks for the testing as I don't have a build environment to verify that.
