Patch in this message
SubjectPatch(?): linux-2.4.9/include/linux/spinlock.h sometimes needs to redefine atomic_dec_and_lock
	The following patch to linux-2.4.9/include/linux/spinlock.h
defines atomic_dec_and_lock to atomic_dec_and_test on SMP
architectures that do not have an "atomic_dec_and_lock", such as
i386. I am not sure if this is the correct patch because, as I
mentioned in my previous email to this list a few minutes ago,
I'm not completely clear on the semantics of these two functions
and I think the problems with this routine may be the result of
an incompletely applied patch. However, I am posting this patch
in case it is correct or otherwise helpful. This patch does eliminate
the problem of atomic_dec_and_lock not being defined in sunrpc.o.
