Subject[PATCH v9 4/6] MCS Lock: Allow architectures to hook in to contended paths
From
Date
From: Will Deacon <will.deacon@arm.com

When contended, architectures may be able to reduce the polling overhead
in ways which aren't expressible using a simple relax() primitive.

This patch allows architectures to hook into the mcs_{lock,unlock}
functions for the contended cases only.
