atomic: only take lock when the counter drops to zero on UP as well

_atomic_dec_and_lock() should not unconditionally take the lock before
calling atomic_dec_and_test() in the UP case.  For consistency reasons it
should behave exactly like in the SMP case.

Besides that this works around the problem that with CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK
this spins in __spin_lock_debug() if the lock is already taken even if the
counter doesn't drop to 0.
