  Log Message:
  Avoid taking a write lock in ossl_provider_doall_activated()

We refactor ossl_provider_doall_activated() so that we only need to take
a read lock instead of a write lock for the flag_lock. This should improve
performance by avoiding the lock contention. We achieve this by protecting
the activatecnt via atomics rather than via a lock and by avoiding the full
provider activation/deactivation procedure where it is not needed.

Partial fix for #20286
