ipc/sem.c: update/correct memory barriers

sem_lock() did not properly pair memory barriers:

!spin_is_locked() and spin_unlock_wait() are both only control barriers.
The code needs an acquire barrier, otherwise the cpu might perform read
operations before the lock test.

As no primitive exists inside <include/spinlock.h> and since it seems
noone wants another primitive, the code creates a local primitive within

With regards to -stable:

The change of sem_wait_array() is a bugfix, the change to sem_lock() is a
nop (just a preprocessor redefinition to improve the readability).  The
bugfix is necessary for all kernels that use sem_wait_array() (i.e.:
starting from 3.10).
