Is this #12070?

I just uploaded D2225 to Phab.

D2225 changes all architectures to use compiler built-ins for
the SMP primitives. To minimize risk I could prepare the patch so it only
applies to PowerPC and we do the rest for 8.0.2. Please let me know if you would
like me to prepare the less risky patch.

Cheers, Peter
