Probably not, and even if they are made available, it wouldn't be helpful.
You can't write correct lock-free code with primitives that have unspecified
memory synchronization properties. Well... maybe you can, but most of us
cannot. ;-)

(Most of us can't write correct lock-free code at all, but that's a
different story.)
