    Subject[patch 09/23] Add cmpxchg_local, cmpxchg64 and cmpxchg64_local to ia64 (revised)
    Add cmpxchg_local, cmpxchg64 and cmpxchg64_local to ia64 (revised)

    Add the primitives cmpxchg_local, cmpxchg64 and cmpxchg64_local to ia64. They
    use cmpxchg_acq as underlying macro, just like the already existing ia64


    ia64 cmpxchg_local coding style fix
    Quoting Keith Owens:

    As a matter of coding style, I prefer

    #define cmpxchg_local cmpxchg
    #define cmpxchg64_local cmpxchg64

    Which makes it absolutely clear that they are the same code. With your
    patch, humans have to do a string compare of two defines to see if they
    are the same.
