    Description

      MONGO_YIELD_CORE_FOR_SMT is defined as the yield instuction, but yield is just a nop in arm64.

      Using an "isb" instruction is a better implementation. The Instruction Synchronization Barrier will create a very small delay without taking other CPU resources, which is required while spinning on a spinlock.
