Only if someone steps forward with patches.  Do you want to do it?

My immediate reaction is that if icc doesn't actually cope with gcc
asm syntax then it has no business being treated as equivalent to
gcc in s_lock.h:

#if defined(__GNUC__) || defined(__ICC)

Can anyone say a reason why the above #if is not wrong ... ie,
are there any platforms where icc does handle gcc asm syntax,
and if so exactly which ones are they?
