A closer look shows that you've actually got it worked out, except
that the ugly hack for Sparcs running BSD now has broken completely.
It used to work when it was in s_lock.h, but in a separately compiled
file, it doesn't.  (It relies on an entry point declared inside asm()
within an unused function that's explicitly declared static.)

I just replaced it with the simpler one for SparcLinux, and it's OK.

On the weird side, after I updated to the current sources, the backend
dies on me whenever I try to delete a database, whether from psql with
'drop database test' or from the command line with 'destroydb test'.
