The entire patch description was just this:

> Convert the spinlocks in the PowerPC interrupt related code into the raw ones,
> also convert the PURR and PMC related spinlocks...

which says what you did, but gives NO CLUE about why this might be a

produces. I will not apply patches with inadequate descriptions.
