Hmm. It seems like it never has been there.. Do you know what brought this
on? Was it Nick's RCU changes from "rcuref_dec_and_test()" to
"atomic_dec_and_test()" and friends?

Judging by your error messages, I _think_ it's the "atomic_inc_not_zero()"
that gets expanded to a cmpxchg() that simply doesn't exist on m68k and
never has.

I guess we've never depended on cmpxchg before. Or am I missing something?
