This patch addresses x86-64 only; other architectures can/will be supported
in the future. The __atomic intrinsic was considered for the
implementation, however libatomic was found[1] to use locks to implement
the 128-bit CAS on at least one architecture and so is eschewed here.
The interface is modeled after the __atomic_compare_exchange_16 (which
itself is based on the C++11 memory model) to best support weak
consistency architectures.

This patch was originally part of a series that introduces a non-blocking stack
mempool handler[2], and is required by a non-blocking ring patchset. This
patch was spun off so that the the NB ring depends only on this patch
and not the entire non-blocking stack patchset.
