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.
