We will eventually implement an efficient workaround to provide
compatibility with CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK and resolve along those lines
a few other similar cases of (potentially risky depending on kernel
evolution) tight structure overlapping. But at the moment since the
constraint affects relatively few people we have to get a few
higher-priority issues out of the way before this can be tackled.
