The previous interlck_asm.S contained:

.global @ExfInterlockedCompareExchange64 at 12
@ExfInterlockedCompareExchange64 at 12:
	movl 4(%edx),%edx
	cmpxchg8b (%esi)

Which is the same as what is in it now... how did your binutils manage to compile it? If it did, then it's simply a bug
in binutils and at one point we have to draw the line at how many buggy releases of compilers and linkers we want to

Best regards,
