locking/kconfig: Simplify INLINE_SPIN_UNLOCK usage

Get rid of INLINE_SPIN_UNLOCK entirely replacing it with
UNINLINE_SPIN_UNLOCK instead of the reverse meaning.

Whoever wants to change the default spinlock inlining
behavior and uninline the spinlocks for some weird reason,
such as spinlock debugging, paravirt etc. can now all just
select UNINLINE_SPIN_UNLOCK

This option reduces the latency of the kernel by making
