ARMv7 LPAE is a 32bit architecture that has 64bit load/stores IIRC.

x86 has cmpxchg8b that can do 64bit things and very much wants the u64

Also, IIRC we have a few platforms where u64 doesn't carry 8 byte
alignment, m68k or something like that, but yes, you likely don't care.

Just to make life interesting...
