Kunihiro's fix looks good for me.
I have accidentally(?) fixed this one just same way as him.

I don't know why the original code does 
> 	__res |= !__ex_flag;
to combine the results (counter and exception flag).
Logical-OR to scaler value is logically:) wrong.
# And using movt explicitly results stupid code generated anyway.

Because this __ex_flag is from "t" of movco, which means
 0: interrupted by int or exp.
 1: done successfully.
, it works as "Low-active" signal, and is not easy to handle
as a C-language conditon.

So, I think 
        int __done, __res;
        ....
        if (unlikely(!done || __res != 0))

is easier to read.
This fixes the deadlock issue Kunihiro reported (by coincident:).

# I'm not sure if this is suitable to be marked as "earlyclobber",
# but I leave it as-is, since nothing bad will occur.

Yes, that looks fine. I'll queue this up, thanks.

If Morimoto-san wants to add his Signed-off-by or Acked-by, I'll add that
also.
