locking/barriers: Replace smp_cond_acquire() with smp_cond_load_acquire()
This new form allows using hardware assisted waiting. Some hardware (ARM64 and x86) allow monitoring an address for changes, so by providing a pointer we can use this to replace the cpu_relax() with hardware optimized methods in the future.
