Hi, all.

Shouldn't the interlocked API's implementation use sync & isync for the memory
At least in C++, we have seen many cases where people implemented their own
mutexes using interlocked APIs. Now on multiple CPU system and PPC in
particular a mutex needs to flush the memory barriers so two diferent threads
sharing the same data will be synchronized if they use the mutex properly.
