32K threads :-) you guys are nuts !

Here's an untested patch for the folks on linuxppc-dev to look at, I'll
review my own stuff & test tomorrow.

Cheers,
Ben.

powerpc: Make rwsem use "long" types on 64-bit platforms

This should avoid overflow of the mmap_sem when playing with insane
number of threads.

Not-signed-off-by-yet.

Allright, gcc's being a pain, and atomics are a struct so we can't that
easily assign.

I tried various tricks but so far they didn't work. I'll have another
look tomorrow, but I may end up having to keep all the crap typecasts.

Cheers,
Ben.
