Sorry, the problem observed on MS VC++ 2008 x86 with full optimization and SSE instruction set. See my previous answer to Phil with explanations.
GCC is not studied by me.

You may try CDS implementation of sparc and ia64 atomics:
  cds\compiler\gcc\ia64\atomic.h - for itanium ia64
  cds\compiler\gcc\sparc\atomic.h - for sparc 64bit mode
These files contain template and common versions of 32bit and 64bit atomic primitives.

If you need I can extract it from CDS for you, no problem.
It works well with CDS tests but I'm not sure whether it is correct...
