The commit:
"Add LLL_MUTEX_READ_LOCK [BZ #28537]"
SHA1: d672a98a1af106bd68deb15576710cd61363f7a6

introduced LLL_MUTEX_READ_LOCK, to skip CAS in spinlock loop
if atomic load fails. But, "continue" inside of do-while loop
does not skip the evaluation of escape expression, thus CAS
is not skipped.

Replace do-while with while and skip LLL_MUTEX_TRYLOCK if
LLL_MUTEX_READ_LOCK fails.
