>Noam, what's the atomic story for EZChip. Do you support such things for user
space in GNU tools. If -atomic is added to perf user space builds are you guys OK!

Well here for EZchip I also see the:
undefined reference to `__sync_add_and_fetch_4'
undefined reference to `__sync_sub_and_fetch_4'

This is since at file tools/include/asm/atomic.h we use the generic implementation
If for ARC I could use just like x86 my own header file then functions like:
atomic_inc()
atomic_dec_and_test()
Are easy to implement and you may see an example for such atomic methods in my patch set for the new platform.

You however wants to use some GCC flag -matomic which I assume somehow will implement the above __sync*.
I can't find the implementation but if it uses LLSC then it won't work for me since I am not supporting LLSC.

So seem that either I have my own header at kernel or that I need to change the GCC implementation for __sync* to use my atomic instructions.
I am personally tend to the x86 solution and not the generic one since changing GCC will require to have new compiler dependency.

-Noam
