Miklos, could you try the fix below?

In general most FASTCALL/fastcall uses are bogus, except for code where 
a function that takes parameters is implemented in assembly with a 
regparm calling convention. The fix is to introduce the "asmregparm" 
attribute to mark such function prototypes with regparm(3). This is the 
opposite of asmlinkage. [asmlinkage forced regparm(0)]

Subject: x86: fix UML calling convention
From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

introduce the "asmregparm" calling convention: for functions
implemented in assembly with a fixed regparm input parameters
calling convention.

mark the semaphore and rwsem slowpath functions with that.
