papi-126.96.36.199-1 is FTBFS on ARM

Fails on F19/rawhide
Tracked the problem down to the following upstream papi commit because it removes the mb() definition for arm:

Update the memory barriers
It turns out PAPI fails on older 32-bit x86 machines because it tries
to use an SSE rmb() memory barrier.
(Yes, I'm trying to run PAPI on a Pentium II. Don't ask)
It looks like our memory barriers were copied out of the kernel, which
doesn't quite work because it expects some kernel infrastructure
This patch uses the definitions used by the "perf" tool instead.
Also dropped the use of the mb() memory barrier on mmap tail write,
as the perf tool itself did a while ago so I'm hoping it's safe to do so
as well. It makes these definitions a lot simpler.
Put a patch in the srpm rawhide and f19 srpms to address this problem. The srpm should build on arm now.
