SubjectFix for asm/system.h
While compiling a C++ program I noticed a little nastiness in asm/system.h
(for Alpha of course). G++ always complained that an implicit cast would not
be allowed with ANSI C++. OK I thought, then make it explicit ;)
Here is a little diff... would someone please include this for the next
kernel release?

switch (size) {
case 4:
! return xchg_u32(ptr, x);
case 8:
! return xchg_u64(ptr, x);
return x;
--- 292,300 ----
switch (size) {
case 4:
! return xchg_u32((volatile int *)ptr, x);
case 8:
! return xchg_u64((volatile long *)ptr, x);
