aarch64 doesn't have native support for XADD instruction, implement it by
the below instruction sequence:

Load (dst + off) to a register
Add src to it
Store it back to (dst + off)

Not really what is needed ?

See this BPF_XADD as an atomic_add() equivalent.

I see. Thanks. The documentation doesn't say too much about "exclusive" add. If so it should need load-acquire/store-release.

I will rework it.
