FUTEX_WAKE_OP is just an optimization and the only op glibc uses is
FUTEX_OP_CLEAR_WAKE_IF_GT_ONE, so something that would need kernel help.
But all glibcs so far if syscall (SYS_futex, ... FUTEX_WAKE_OP, ...)
fails just fall back to syscall (SYS_futex, ... FUTEX_WAKE, ...) +

So I think it is safe to leave FUTEX_WAKE_OP not supported for BSWAP_NEEDED.
