mutex: Move mutex spinning code from sched/core.c back to mutex.c
As mentioned by Ingo, the SCHED_FEAT_OWNER_SPIN scheduler feature bit was really just an early hack to make with/without mutex-spinning testable. So it is no longer necessary. This patch removes the SCHED_FEAT_OWNER_SPIN feature bit and move the mutex spinning code from kernel/sched/core.c back to kernel/mutex.c which is where they should belong.
