No, they work on their own - it seems to be only inside other structure
initializers that they break. We use empty initializers all over the place
in other places.

That's not what I'm going to use. I wanted the SMP stuff to be "close" to
the other process priorities etc, for cache reasons. I've added a dummy
"gcc_is_buggy" entry to the UP spinlock, and while it will never be used
it at least will allow buggy compilers to compile the thing.
