Subject[PATCH RT 21/27] ARM: cmpxchg: define __HAVE_ARCH_CMPXCHG for armv6 and later
3.4.106-rt132-rc1 stable review patch.
If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

Both pi_stress and sigwaittest in rt-test show performance gain with
__HAVE_ARCH_CMPXCHG. Testing result on coretile_express_a9x4:

pi_stress -p 99 --duration=300 (on linux-3.4-rc5; bigger is better)
vanilla: Total inversion performed: 5493381
patched: Total inversion performed: 5621746

sigwaittest -p 99 -l 100000 (on linux-3.4-rc5-rt6; less is better)
3.4-rc5-rt6: Min 24, Cur 27, Avg 30, Max 98
patched: Min 19, Cur 21, Avg 23, Max 96
