spinlock: Indicate that a lockup is only suspected
On an over-committed KVM system we got a: "BUG: spinlock lockup on CPU#2, swapper/2/0" message on the heavily contended virtio blk spinlock. While we might want to reconsider the locking of virtio-blk (lock is held while switching to the host) this patch tries to make the message clearer: the lockup is only suspected.
