Hm, with your locking/atomic patch series applied (in linux-next), I can
no longer make arch/sh/ get this build warning:

../fs/ocfs2/file.c: In function 'ocfs2_file_write_iter':
../arch/sh/include/asm/cmpxchg.h:49:3: warning: value computed is not used [-Wunused-value]
49 | ((__typeof__(*(ptr)))__xchg((ptr),(unsigned long)(x), sizeof(*(ptr))))


so I will go ahead with the rest of my arch/sh/ patches and then contemplate
what to do about this one.

I'll look at the 4 remaining arches later..

thanks.
