FWIW, I tried that approach with i386,x86_64 code.
The result with .subsection removed was:
0: f0 ff 0f lock decl (%rdi)
3: 75 0b jne 10 <pthread_spin_lock+0x10>
10: f3 90 pause
12: 83 3f 00 cmpl $0x0,(%rdi)
15: 7f e9 jg 0 <pthread_spin_lock>
17: eb f7 jmp 10 <pthread_spin_lock+0x10>
19: 31 c0 xor %eax,%eax
1b: c3 retq
If I am reading this correctly, this will spin forever.
