On ARM, while it supposedly links, because __sync_compare_and_exchange_8
is defined in libgcc.a, it will only work with post-2011 kernels and is
going to be very slow (because you do a separate compare and exchange
to load and separate compare and exchange to store, i.e. twice as much
effort to actually not achieve atomicity, sometimes even 2 syscalls).
