It should work on a real MIPS CPU.  The PlayStation 2 has a dumbed-down
MIPS chip without the TAS instruction :-(, but now that we've eliminated
that point I think you've found a problem.  We made several
reorganizations in the spinlock code between 7.4 and 8.0 that could
possibly have broken the platforms we were not testing on --- can you
take a look at the changes in s_lock.h and s_lock.c and see where we
went wrong?
