Not sure I'm understanding you right, you're saying we need both? i.e.:

struct bsca_block *sca;

read_lock(&vcpu->kvm->arch.sca_lock);
sca = kvm->arch.sca;
atomic_or(SCA_UTILITY_MTCR, &sca->utility);
read_unlock(&vcpu->kvm->arch.sca_lock);

Obviously you would need to change the definition of the utility field and could not use a bit field like Janosch
suggested, unless you want to use a cmpxchg loop.
It's a bit ugly that utility is a two byte value.
Maybe there is a nicer way to set that bit, OR (OI, OIY) seem appropriate, but I don't know if they have a nice
abstraction in Linux or if you'd need inline asm.
