Since all of rwsem-xadd is now generic code; how about we delete the
spinlock thing and keep everything rwsem ?

We don't carry a special spinlock mutex implementation either. And
arguably any arch that uses spinlock based atomics (afaict the only case
where rwsem-spinlock makes any sense anyway) suck anyway.
