Like Jim said, we would really need them for directly generating the
instructions, also there is no @llvm.atomic.load version which isn't
suffixed by add, sub, ..., not that I found at least. I can add
builtins/intrinsics for the other versions (byte,half,word) if someone
think it's worth doing so. For this specific STREXD/ LDREXD patch, is
there anything else that someone would like me to address? Jakob, I
agree that regalloc stuff is gross, but since both instructions are
only used by these intrinsic right now the impact isn't great. Also,
I'm not sure how to make it cleaner, can you point to some code that
model the even/odd pair constraint explicitly in a more elegant way?

I'll wait a little bit more and if there's no opposition I'm going to commit it.

Thank you!
