I think it just works on most Linux 32-bit architectures because
the compiler support can inline a suitable atomic op (there
is one case where it doesn't, which I think is PPC32).

In any case, we mustn't use atomics on types larger
than the host pointer type, because it's not portable enough.
Paolo or Alex, can you have a look at this?
