    kernel - revamp mtx_spinlock()
    * Revamp mtx_spinlock(), add mtx_spinlock_try(), and add mtx_spinunlock().
    * Enter a proper hard critical section when using mtx_spinlock*(),
      just like the normal spinlock() code does.
      The difference is that mtx spinlocks have a ref count and thus are
    * mtx_spinlock*() is not used in the code yet.  A followup commit will
      begin using it for the syscons lock.
