The test is to benchmark the performance of spinlock by counting the
number of spinlock acquire and release operations within the specified
A typical pair of lock and unlock operations costs tens or hundreds of
nano seconds, in comparison to this, delaying 1 us outside of the locked
region is too much, compromising the goal of benchmarking the lock and
unlock performance.
