[scudo][standalone] Merge Spin & Blocking mutex into a Hybrid one

Summary:
We ran into a problem on Fuchsia where yielding threads would never
be deboosted, ultimately resulting in several threads spinning on the
same TSD, and no possibility for another thread to be scheduled,
dead-locking the process.

While this was fixed in Zircon, this lead to discussions about if
spinning without a break condition was a good decision, and settled on
a new hybrid model that would spin for a while then block.

Currently we are using a number of iterations for spinning that is
mostly arbitrary (based on sanitizer_common values), but this can
be tuned in the future.

Since we are touching common.h, we also use this change as a vehicle
for an Android optimization (the page size is fixed in Bionic, so use
a fixed value too).
