thanks, i have picked up the x86 bits.

Will pick up later cleanup versions as well if there's some better macro
approach to do this as an ENTRY thing, as we could consolidate both the
start and the end into a single macro:

.type __down_failed_trylock, @function

.size __down_failed_trylock, . - __down_failed_trylock

perhaps START_FUNCTION() and END_FUNCTION() macros?
