I don't know. I am not a Linux kernel expert by any means, and there is no
definitive documentation that I know of. :-(

Another strong case for ./configure. (HAVE_ASM_ATOMIC_H.)

All except the alpha build fail because they don't have a working
asm/atomic.h. Most don't define atomic_read, atomic_inc, atomic_dec_and_test
at all, while HPPA uses 'new' as a variable name, apparently.

Looks like I'll have to disable atomic_count_linux.hpp and lwm_linux.hpp by
default, using pthreads instead... Ideas?
