Pull atomics rework from Thomas Gleixner:
"Peter Zijlstras rework of atomics and fallbacks. This solves two
1) Compilers uninline small atomic_* static inline functions which
can expose them to instrumentation.
2) The instrumentation of atomic primitives was done at the
architecture level while composites or fallbacks were provided at
the generic level. As a result there are no uninstrumented
variants of the fallbacks.
Both issues were in the way of fully isolating fragile entry code
pathes and especially the text poke int3 handler which is prone to an
endless recursion problem when anything in that code path is about to
be instrumented. This was always a problem, but got elevated due to
the new batch mode updates of tracing.
The solution is to mark the functions __always_inline and to flip the
fallback and instrumentation so the non-instrumented variants are at
the architecture level and the instrumentation is done in generic
The latter introduces another fallback variant which will go away once
all architectures have been moved over to arch_atomic_*"
