[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 05/17] xen: arm32: resync atomics with (almost) v3.14-rc7

Almost because I omitting aed3a4e "ARM: 7868/1: arm/arm64: remove
atomic_clear_mask() ..." which I will apply to both arm32 and arm64
simultaneously in a later patch.

This pulls in the following Linux patches:

    ARM: atomics: prefetch the destination word for write prior to strex

    The cost of changing a cacheline from shared to exclusive state can be
    significant, especially when this is triggered by an exclusive store,
    since it may result in having to retry the transaction.

    This patch prefixes our atomic access implementations with pldw
    instructions (on CPUs which support them) to try and grab the line in
    exclusive state from the start. Only the barrier-less functions are
    updated, since memory barriers can limit the usefulness of prefetching

    ARM: 7867/1: include: asm: use 'int' instead of 'unsigned long' for 'oldval

    For atomic_cmpxchg(), the type of 'oldval' need be 'int' to match the
    type of "*ptr" (used by 'ldrex' instruction) and 'old' (used by 'teq'
