Yes, I will twist the generic code to generate better code.
As I said in the commit log, only x86, ia64 and alpha provide assembly
code to replace the generic C code. The ll/sc archs that I have access

done some performance measurement on both those platforms and didn't see
any performance difference. I didn't include them as they were using
generic code before. I will rerun the tests after I twisted the generic
