Hm, it fails when __ticket_t is 16 bits:

/home/jeremy/git/linux/arch/x86/include/asm/spinlock.h: Assembler messages:
/home/jeremy/git/linux/arch/x86/include/asm/spinlock.h:73: Error: suffix
or operands invalid for `or'

        lock; ors $1, 2(%rbx)   #,


So I don't think that's going to work out...
