  Rework the optimization for spinlocks on UP to be slightly less drastic and
  turn it back on.  Specifically, the actual changes are now less intrusive
  in that the _get_spin_lock() and _rel_spin_lock() macros now have their
  contents changed for UP vs SMP kernels which centralizes the changes.
  Also, UP kernels do not use _mtx_lock_spin() and no longer include it.  The
  UP versions of the spin lock functions do not use any atomic operations,
  but simple compares and stores which allow mtx_owned() to still work for
  spin locks while removing the overhead of atomic operations.
