I submitted a patch to use our own assembly primatives on Linux
based on FreeBSD's atomic code.  I know Thom spent some time
trying to get it to work on the other platforms (i.e. cleaning up
the #defines on the other platforms).

However, this has all been sidetracked by the recent push to
remove atomics entirely.

I'm on the fence about removing it  - I don't really care what
happens, but people need to step up and get it fixed on Linux
if it remains.  -- justin
