Bit spinlocks are problematic if PREEMPT_RT is enabled. They disable
preemption, which is undesired for latency reasons and breaks when regular
spinlocks are taken within the bit_spinlock locked region because regular
spinlocks are converted to 'sleeping spinlocks' on RT.

Substitute the BH_Uptodate_Lock bit spinlock with a regular spinlock for
PREEMPT_RT enabled kernels.

Bit spinlocks are also not covered by lock debugging, e.g. lockdep. With
the spinlock substitution in place, they can be exposed via
CONFIG_DEBUG_BIT_SPINLOCKS.
