Peter Z recommended to drop to ticket spinlocks instead trying to port
back all the qspinlock changes to v4.4-rt.

With ticket spinlocks, 'stress-ng --ptrace 4' run for 50 hours without
a problem (before it was seconds) and my normal workload for -rt testing
for 60 hours without a problem (before it broke within 24h).

The cyclictest max values went slightly down from 32us to 30us but
that might just be coincidence.
