  The attached patch does likewise, but adds a "memory" clobber.  It generates
correct code:

	.loc 3 127 0
	movl	__ZN13pthread_mutex7mutexesE+8, %eax	 # mutexes.head, D.28599
	movl	%eax, 36(%ebx)	 # D.28599, <variable>.next
	.loc 2 60 0
 # 60 "/gnu/winsup/src/winsup/cygwin/winbase.h" 1
	lock cmpxchgl %ebx, __ZN13pthread_mutex7mutexesE+8	 # this,
 # 0 "" 2
	movl	%eax, -12(%ebp)	 # tmp68, ret
	.loc 2 61 0
	movl	-12(%ebp), %eax	 # ret, D.28596
	.loc 3 126 0
	cmpl	%eax, 36(%ebx)	 # D.28596, <variable>.next
	jne	L186	 #,

although as you see it has some needless register motion as it stores %eax to
the stack slot for ret and reloads it.  Still, this is now almost as good as
the code generated by my original patch.


	* winbase.h (ilockexch):  Fix asm constraints.
	(ilockcmpexch):  Likewise.
