http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=9d55b9923a1b7ea8193b8875c57ec940dc2ff027
 
I did a simpler version by just replacing LOCK_PREFIX with lock. The
reason is, that we would need a separate implementation for
__futex_atomic_op1() as well, due to:

case FUTEX_OP_ADD:
	__futex_atomic_op1(LOCK_PREFIX "xaddl %0, %2", ret, oldval,

And it's not really worth the trouble.

Backport to 2.6.24 and 2.6.23 attached.

Thanks,

Subject: x86: replace LOCK_PREFIX in futex.h
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
Date: Thu, 07 Feb 2008 13:05:19 +0100

The exception fixup for the futex macros __futex_atomic_op1/2 and
futex_atomic_cmpxchg_inatomic() is missing an entry when the lock
prefix is replaced by a NOP via SMP alternatives.

Chuck Ebert tracked this down from the information provided in:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=429412

A possible solution would be to add another fixup after the
LOCK_PREFIX, so both the LOCK and NOP case have their own entry in the
exception table, but it's not really worth the trouble.

Simply replace LOCK_PREFIX with lock and keep those untouched by SMP
alternatives.
