This is a minimal subset of atomic functionality needed to support `std::shared_ptr` and `std::call_once` among other things. All new code should use std::atomic IMO. It's not meant to reinvent the wheel, It's meant to be a portable option for when there is no "wheel" already.

Yes, the hardware doesn't support anything.
