lib: atomic64: Initialize locks statically to fix early users

The atomic64 library uses a handful of static spin locks to implement
atomic 64-bit operations on architectures without support for atomic
64-bit instructions.

Unfortunately, the spinlocks are initialized in a pure initcall and that
is too late for the vfs namespace code which wants to use atomic64
operations before the initcall is run.

This became a problem as of commit 8823c079ba71: "vfs: Add setns support
for the mount namespace".

This leads to BUG messages such as:

  BUG: spinlock bad magic on CPU#0, swapper/0/0
   lock: atomic64_lock+0x240/0x400, .magic: 00000000, .owner: <none>/-1, .owner_cpu: 0
    do_raw_spin_lock+0x158/0x198
    _raw_spin_lock_irqsave+0x4c/0x58
    atomic64_add_return+0x30/0x5c
    alloc_mnt_ns.clone.14+0x44/0xac
    create_mnt_ns+0xc/0x54
    mnt_init+0x120/0x1d4
    vfs_caches_init+0xe0/0x10c
    start_kernel+0x29c/0x300

coming out early on during boot when spinlock debugging is enabled.

Fix this by initializing the spinlocks statically at compile time.
