I wish I could remember, but I agree it seems pointless here. The only
way I can think it could be of any use is if writes to the CGU register
we're accessing aren't atomic (ie. if we could observe a partially
completed write), but I don't believe that's the case.

So Zhou, if you want to drop the spinlock here from your X1830 path &
ideally also add a patch to remove it in the non-X1830 path that would
be great.

Thanks,
    Paul
