Please let me know when this is ready. I currently have a bit of time
to spend on this.

In summary, the cases that I need to handle are:

1. Linux kernel provided memory-barrier and CAS operations (only);
2. Asm load-locked/store-conditional for words (only);
3. As 2 but also for smaller types.

I could probably work this out from the source, but it would save some
time to have some hints....
