The inline assmeblies look good now but I get this compile error on s390:

CC arch/s390/lib/uaccess_pt.o
arch/s390/lib/uaccess_pt.c:373: error: conflicting types for 'futex_atomic_cmpxchg_pt'
arch/s390/lib/uaccess.h:21: note: previous declaration of 'futex_atomic_cmpxchg_pt' was here
arch/s390/lib/uaccess_pt.c:403: warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type
make[1]: *** [arch/s390/lib/uaccess_pt.o] Error 1

The trouble is this part of the patch:

-int futex_atomic_cmpxchg_pt(int __user *uaddr, int oldval, int newval)
+int futex_atomic_cmpxchg_pt(int *uval, int __user *uaddr,
+ int oldval, int newval)

You need to change these "int"s to "u32"s.
