Subject: 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).
