If the architecture doesn't have sub-word swap atomic, won't it generate
the same/similar code no matter which version xchg_tail() is used? That
is even CONFIG_ARCH_USE_QUEUED_SPINLOCKS_XCHG32=y, xchg_tail() acts
similar to an xchg16() implemented by cmpxchg(), which means we still
don't have forward progress guarantee. So this configuration doesn't
solve the problem.

I think it's OK to introduce this config and don't provide xchg16() for
risc-v. But I don't see the point of converting other architectures to
use it.

Regards,
Boqun
