[PATCH] Fix spinlock debugging delays to not time out too early

The spinlock-debug wait-loop was using loops_per_jiffy to detect too long
spinlock waits - but on fast CPUs this led to a way too fast timeout and false
messages.

The fix is to include a __delay(1) call in the loop, to correctly approximate
the intended delay timeout of 1 second.  The code assumes that every
architecture implements __delay(1) to last around 1/(loops_per_jiffy*HZ)
seconds.
