Subject[PATCH 4.13 13/85] parisc: Fix double-word compare and exchange in LWS code on 32-bit kernels
4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: John David Anglin <>

commit 374b3bf8e8b519f61eb9775888074c6e46b3bf0c upstream.

As discussed on the debian-hppa list, double-wordcompare and exchange
operations fail on 32-bit kernels. Looking at the code, I realized that
the ",ma" completer does the wrong thing in the "ldw,ma 4(%r26), %r29"
instruction. This increments %r26 and causes the following store to
write to the wrong location.

Note by Helge Deller:
The patch applies cleanly to stable kernel series if this upstream
commit is merged in advance:
f4125cfdb300 ("parisc: Avoid trashing sr2 and sr3 in LWS code").
