xen: disable PV spinlocks on HVM
Stefano Stabellini [Tue, 6 Sep 2011 16:41:47 +0000 (17:41 +0100)]
PV spinlocks cannot possibly work with the current code because they are
enabled after pvops patching has already been done, and because PV
spinlocks use a different data structure than native spinlocks so we
cannot switch between them dynamically. A spinlock that has been taken
once by the native code (__ticket_spin_lock) cannot be taken by
__xen_spin_lock even after it has been released.
