This patch is needed so powerpc can build java once again.
The first patch uses the new test and set builtins if it is compiled with 4.4
or newer, and fixes up the asm code if it is compiled with an earlier compiler.
I think patch #1 that keeps in support for older compilers is probably more
bulletproof, and would be useful for an upstream merge, but if people feel
strongly, I can checkin patch #2.
