Actually we don't require the A extension for UP kernels, which
makes sense.

But that means we should keep using the asm-generic version for


 * Use the generic interrupt disabling versions if the A extension
 * is not supported.
#error "Can't support generic futex calls with A extension on SMP"
#include <asm-generic/futex.h>
