kernel/spinlock.c: add default arch_*_relax definitions for GENERIC_LOCKBREAK
When running with GENERIC_LOCKBREAK=y, the locking implementations emit calls to arch_{read,write,spin}_relax when spinning on a contended lock in order to allow architectures to favour the CPU owning the lock if possible. In reality, everybody apart from PowerPC and S390 just does cpu_relax() here, so make that the default behaviour and allow it to be overridden if required.
