locking/atomic: Use s64 for atomic64_t on 64-bit

Now that all architectures use 64 consistently as the base type for the
atomic64 API, let's have the CONFIG_64BIT definition of atomic64_t use
s64 as the underlying type for atomic64_t, rather than long, matching
the generated headers.

On architectures where atomic64_read(v) is READ_ONCE(v->counter), this
patch will cause the return type of atomic64_read() to be s64.

As of this patch, the atomic64 API can be relied upon to consistently
return s64 where a value rather than boolean condition is returned. This
should make code more robust, and simpler, allowing for the removal of
casts previously required to ensure consistent types.
