OTP-7080  The runtime system with SMP support not using
           the native atomic integer implementation part
           of OTP could deadlock when run on a system with
           more than one logical processor. That is, only
           the runtime system with SMP support on other
           hardware platforms than x86, x86_64, sparc32,
           and powerpc32 are effected by this bug.

How to apply the attached patch (gnu tar and gnu patch is needed):
