    locking, sched: Introduce smp_cond_acquire() and use it · b3e0b1b6

    Introduce smp_cond_acquire() which combines a control dependency and a
    read barrier to form acquire semantics.
    
    This primitive has two benefits:
    
     - it documents control dependencies,
     - its typically cheaper than using smp_load_acquire() in a loop.
