[V5,1/2] ACPI / EC: Fix broken 64bit big-endian users of 'global_lock'

Message ID 8d3d3428c3a36f821e4c3d8563d094ca4b4763fd.1443304934.git.viresh.kumar@linaro.org

global_lock is defined as an unsigned long and accessing only its lower
32 bits from sysfs is incorrect, as we need to consider other 32 bits
for big endian 64-bit systems. There are no such platforms yet, but the
code needs to be robust for such a case.

Fix that by changing type of 'global_lock' to u32.

BCC'd a lot of people (rather than cc'ing them) to make sure
- the series reaches them
- mailing lists do not block the patchset due to long cc list
- and we don't spam the BCC'd people for every reply

V4->V5:
- Switch back to the original solution of making global_lock u32.
