Subject: [PATCH 3.14 011/114] s390/locking: Reenable optimistic spinning

3.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Christian Borntraeger <borntraeger@...ibm.com>

commit 36e7fdaa1a04fcf65b864232e1af56a51c7814d6 upstream.

commit 4badad352a6bb202ec68afa7a574c0bb961e5ebc (locking/mutex: Disable
optimistic spinning on some architectures) fenced spinning for
architectures without proper cmpxchg.
There is no need to disable mutex spinning on s390, though:
The instructions CS,CSG and friends provide the proper guarantees.
(We dont implement cmpxchg with locks).
