Subject[PATCH V4 1/2] ACPI / EC: Fix broken 64bit big-endian users of 'global_lock'
Date
global_lock is defined as an unsigned long and accessing only its lower
32 bits from sysfs is incorrect, as we need to consider other 32 bits
for big endian 64 bit systems. There are no such platforms yet, but the
code needs to be robust for such a case.

Fix that by passing a local variable to debugfs_create_bool() and
assigning its value to global_lock later.

Signed-off-by: Viresh Kumar <viresh.kumar@linaro.org>

V3->V4:
- Create a local variable instead of changing type of global_lock
(Rafael)
- Drop the stable tag
- BCC'd a lot of people (rather than cc'ing them) to make sure
- the series reaches them
- mailing lists do not block the patchset due to long cc list
- and we don't spam the BCC'd people for every reply
