The test and set locks in boehm-gc/include/private/gc_locks.h have invalid asm
for creating the test and set locks and the current Powerpc GCC compiler
generates errors when enabling java in a bootstrap.

In addition, GCC 4.4 has added the __sync_lock_test_and_set and
__sync_lock_release builtins which abstract these functions, so the asm is not
needed for 4.4 and beyond.
