Subject[patch 31/58] powerpc: Fix data-corrupting bug in __futex_atomic_op
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>

upstream commit: 306a82881b14d950d59e0b59a55093a07d82aa9a

Richard Henderson pointed out that the powerpc __futex_atomic_op has a
bug: it will write the wrong value if the stwcx. fails and it has to
retry the lwarx/stwcx. loop, since 'oparg' will have been overwritten
by the result from the first time around the loop. This happens
because it uses the same register for 'oparg' (an input) as it uses
for the result.

This fixes it by using separate registers for 'oparg' and 'ret'.
