Subject: PR/44387 CVS commit: src/sys/arch/powerpc/powerpc
Date: Tue, 28 Feb 2017 17:35:29 +0000

 Module Name:	src
 Committed By:	chs
 Date:		Tue Feb 28 17:35:29 UTC 2017
 Modified Files:
 	src/sys/arch/powerpc/powerpc: locore_subr.S
 Log Message:
 in cpu_switchto() and the fast-softint context switch code,
 put back the stwcx. instruction to clear the reservation.
 we used to have this in the old cpu_switch() until it was
 if-0'd in 2003 and removed completely in 2007.
 this fixes hangs I've seen where a softint thread is
 blocked waiting for a mutex that is not held.
 this should also fix PR 44387.
