Sounds good to me.

With that, I would suggest we actually remove the -ENOSYS fallback
for arch_futex_atomic_op_inuser() and futex_atomic_cmpxchg_inatomic()
in asm-generic/futex.h as well as the HAVE_FUTEX_CMPXCHG Kconfig
symbol, plus these additional fixups:

- for xtensa and mips configurations without ll/sc, fall back to the
  asm-generic version. These are all uniprocessor, while the
  corresponding SMP machines have a working
  arch_futex_atomic_op_inuser().

- Disable SMP support for sun4m/sun4d. From the historic git
  tree, it's unclear how well this ever worked, and very few machines
  of this class ever existed

- Mark SMP for LEON as temporarily broken. As I see in the LEON
  patch set, they have changes to enable compare-and-swap-atomic
  instructions unconditionally, as all SMP Leons have those and
  seem to require this support already for other things.
