    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
    good thing to do - what problem it fixes or what desirable outcome it
    produces. I will not apply patches with inadequate descriptions.
