lockdep: Remove cmpxchg to update nr_chain_hlocks
For some reason nr_chain_hlocks is updated with cmpxchg, but this is performed inside of the lockdep global "grab_lock()", which also makes simple modification of this variable atomic. Remove the cmpxchg logic for updating nr_chain_hlocks and simplify the code.
