Yes it seems to fix it for me.

There's no unnecessary stack protector gunk, and no store/load to the
stack variable.

This is my previous example of ext4_resize_begin(), hacked to use a copy
of the generic version of test_and_set_bit_lock(), which in turn was
hacked to use a local version of your READ_ONCE().
