Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: [PATCH v3] arm: Adding support for atomic half word
 exchange


Hello Will
Here is the version 3 of the patch correcting earlier issues.

v2 -> v3 : Removed the comment related to Qspinlock, changed !defined to
#ifndef.
v1 -> v2 : Extended the guard code to cover the byte exchange case as 
well following opinion of Will Deacon.
Checkpatch has been run and issues were taken care of.

Since support for half-word atomic exchange was not there and Qspinlock
on ARM requires it, modified __xchg() to add support for that as well.
ARMv6 and lower does not support ldrex{b,h} so, added a guard code
to prevent build breaks.

Title : Re: Re: Re: [PATCH v2] arm: Adding support for atomic half word exchange

Hello Will,

Thank you so much for the review. I have thought it over and it makes
sense not to have that comment in cmpxchg.h, I will also change !defined to
#ifndef and quickly post a v3.

Regards,
Sarbojit

#ifndef ? (to match the __cmpxchg code).

I think I said it before, but I don't think this comment is of any real
value.

Other than those, this looks ok to me.
