blueCmdstekern: I _think_ I stole the idea of the atomic functions from somewhere04:07
blueCmdstekern: anyway, yes - glibc allows you to only specify an compxchg, and we could leave it at that - but IIRC the reasoning is that this is used quite heavily in threading and we could just as well do it in the kernel04:10
blueCmdstekern: now I remember. - look at those default implementatons04:17
blueCmdthey are spinning users of compxchg, which sucks04:18
blueCmdstekern: also, the atomic code is under the 'If you get rich, I want 20%'-license04:29
