SubjectRe: [RFC][PATCH 0/5] arch: atomic rework

Is it worth considering a move towards using C11 atomics and barriers and
compiler intrinsics inside the kernel? The compiler _ought_ to be able to do

One thing I'm not sure of, though, is how well gcc's atomics will cope with
interrupt handlers touching atomics on CPUs without suitable atomic
instructions - that said, userspace does have to deal with signals getting
underfoot. but then userspace can't normally disable interrupts.
