Please merge this via the ppc tree?


And let's ask the hexagon maintainers to take a look at the definition
in arch/hexagon/include/asm/atomic.h. I assume that it can be removed,
but that might cause problems with files which include asm/atomic.h
directly. I have found two such files in non-arch code and have queued
fixes. There are no such files in arch/hexagon code, so I think it's
safe to zap the hexagon definition of atomic_inc_not_zero().

Curious: is there a technical reason why ppc uses "__inline__" rather
than "inline"?
