Subject2.4.10 build failure - atomic_dec_and_lock export
Date
From
Trond,

2.4.10 won't link with CONFIG_SMP and i386 CPU selected. I believe the problem
lies in in the #ifndef atomic_dec_and_lock in lib/dec_and_lock.c. As far as I
can see this symbol is always defined because it's exported.

The following patch works for me, but I barely understand the kernel build
machinery(*) so please don't use this without checking it carefully.

Ian

* e.g. I cannot understand why this symbol isn't versioned in the object file.
