I dont think Sparc is at fault here - system.h is where we
historically provided xchg() from. Then as atomic.h was introduced
and extended, some architectures (x86 amongst them) gradually
migrated their definition of xchg() into atomic.h and related helper
headers. (while still making it available for system.h)

This opened up the path for someone eventually only including
asm/atomic.h from generic code and breaking the architectures that
only provide it via system.h. So i've queued up the fix below - this
should address the problem on Sparc and s390.

So moving it to atomic.h does make sense - but that's no excuse for
breaking the build. Sorry about this!

Subject: [PATCH] lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint, fix

Impact: build fix

Stephen Rothwell reported that the Sparc build broke:

In file included from kernel/panic.c:12:
include/linux/debug_locks.h: In function '__debug_locks_off':
include/linux/debug_locks.h:15: error: implicit declaration of function 'xchg'

due to:

9eeba61: lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint

There is some inconsistency between architectures about where exactly
xchg() is defined. Most have it in system.h but also in atomic.h (which
is arguably the more logical point for it). Some, such as Sparc only
have it in asm/system.h and not available via asm/atomic.h.

Use the widest set of headers in debug_locks.h and also include asm/system.h.
