I see that Stephen fixed this by adding a asm/system.h include
to asm/atomic.h on sparc.

I don't agree with this, and now we have yet another platform
broken in the same way.

If debug_locks.h needs xchg() I think it should include asm/system.h
which was always the traditional location from which to include that

It is even the case on x86.

We get it via asm/atomic.h by accident on x86 and other platforms, not
because that's the canonical location from which to get xchg().
