But it wasn't. And I didn't test it because building a cross-gcc had been hard enough, so I didn't have the energy to try a cross-clang on that day. So I'm sorry, but it was an honest mistake. > Corresponding llvm bugs (no plans to add support soon): > https://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=9295 > https://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=14406 > Really? OK, so it's either suboptimal code for everyone or compiler-specific better code. Why can't we have nice things? OTOH, maybe we simply shouldn't write synchronisation primitives ourselves and instead use the ones provided by GCC (and let other compilers suck on a salty sausage, if they don't support those primitives).
