Andrew Jones did exactly that (CCed). But does pvlock have to use jump
label? I looked at the code and it is used like paravirt patching. Meaning
it is patched only once on a boot up when XEN is detected. May be use
paravirt patching instead of jump label? What if jump label will want
to use spinlock for some reason in the future (it uses mutex currently)?
