/*
 * spin_begin is used before beginning a busy-wait loop, and must be paired
 * with spin_end when the loop is exited. spin_cpu_relax must be called
 * within the loop.
 *
 * The loop body should be as small and fast as possible, on the order of
 * tens of instructions/cycles as a guide. It should and avoid calling
 * cpu_relax, or any "spin" or sleep type of primitive including nested uses
 * of these primitives. It should not lock or take any other resource.
 * Violations of these guidelies will not cause a bug, but may cause sub
 * optimal performance.
 *
 * These loops are optimized to be used where wait times are expected to be
 * less than the cost of a context switch (and associated overhead).
 *
 * Detection of resource owner and decision to spin or sleep or guest-yield
 * (e.g., spin lock holder vcpu preempted, or mutex owner not on CPU) can be
 * tested within the loop body.
