Subject[193/205] [IA64] Fix spinaphore down_spin()
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com>

commit b70f4e85bfc4d7000036355b714a92d5c574f1be upstream.

Typo in down_spin() meant it only read the low 32 bits of the
"serve" value, instead of the full 64 bits. This results in the
system hanging when the values in ticket/serve get larger than
32-bits. A big enough system running the right test can hit this
in a just a few hours.

Broken since 883a3acf5b0d4782ac35981227a0d094e8b44850
[IA64] Re-implement spinaphores using ticket lock concepts
