The definition of smp_mb__after_unlock_lock() is currently smp_mb()
for CONFIG_PPC and a no-op otherwise.  It would be better to instead
provide an architecture-selectable Kconfig option, and select the
strength of smp_mb__after_unlock_lock() based on that option.  This
commit therefore creates ARCH_WEAK_RELEASE_ACQUIRE, has PPC select it,
and bases the definition of smp_mb__after_unlock_lock() on this new
ARCH_WEAK_RELEASE_ACQUIRE Kconfig option.
