Right -- this is similar to issues we've run into trying to make XRay work / get built for Darwin too.

Those are in the llvm/test/CodeGen/X86/... -- in particular, searching for 'xray_' in the files there will be the best way of finding examples of what we're looking for to verify.

I'm sure adding an implementation for atomic_sint32_t will be nice to have across platforms. :)

We're still working on getting XRay to build right and work on macOS so that shouldn't be a barrier. :)

A patch would be good there too.

Thanks again!
