Subject[PATCH v1 11/15] arm/futex: UP futex_atomic_op_inuser() relies on disabled preemption
Date
The !CONFIG_SMP implementation of futex_atomic_op_inuser() seems to rely
on disabled preemption to guarantee mutual exclusion.

From commit e589ed23dd27:
"For UP it's enough to disable preemption to ensure mutual exclusion..."
From the code itself:
"!SMP, we can work around lack of atomic ops by disabling preemption"

Let's make this explicit, to prepare for pagefault_disable() not
touching preemption anymore.
