Subject[PATCH 06/10] barriers: Introduce smp_cond_load_relaxed and atomic_cond_read_relaxed
Date
Whilst we currently provide smp_cond_load_acquire and
atomic_cond_read_acquire, there are cases where the ACQUIRE semantics are
not required because of a subsequent fence or release operation once the
conditional loop has exited.

This patch adds relaxed versions of the conditional spinning primitives
to avoid unnecessary barrier overhead on architectures such as arm64.
