Hi Lutz, Vladimir,

@Lutz: thanks for fixing this. I think your change looks good.

@Vladimir: thanks, but I think we can push this ourselves because it
is ppc only.

I've also realized that amd64 uses cmpptr() which takes the result of
"RTMLockingThreshold / RTMTotalCountIncrRate" as an int32_t. This can
be wrong if the result of the division is greater than 32 bit. I'm not
sure how relevant that is, but maybe we could either change the types
of RTMLockingThreshold and RTMTotalCountIncrRate to int or else fix
the compare on amd64 to compare against a full 64 bit value.

What do you think Vladimir - maybe do that as a follow up change or do
you want to include it here (in which case you'd have to sponsor :) ?

Thank you and best regards,
