This is silly, just make the whole block depend on CPU_FTR_ARCH_300.

I've fixed it up.

This is called from clone().

And so is this.

So I think you only need the latter.

That does mean you're clearing the TIDR on fork(), but not exec().

Typically you'd do the reverse, ie. clear it on exec() but leave it the
same on fork().

Because this is a "thread id" I think it does make sense to clear it on
fork(), otherwise you potentially have two processes with the same id
and only one of them will be woken up by the AS_notify.

So I'll drop the clear from arch_dup_task_struct().

cheers
