* Discussion about API for clang / gcc builtins (Honnappa)
** shemminger: MSFT doesn't have support for atomic builtins
** thomas: need to know what the effort looks like for compatibility
** thomas: 3 options to vote for atomics
*** OPT1 - continue using gcc builtins
*** OPT2 - a wrapper at compile time that can be done in future
*** OPT3 - do mass renames / wrapping now with internal implementations
*** OPT4 - create a wrapper that clones gcc built-ins instead
**** Not a good option because it could clash with external project that links in
     stdatomic vs builtin
