Yeah, I guess x86 _should_ really do __this_cpu_xchg() as just a
read-write pair.

In general, a read-write pair is probably always the right thing to
do, and the only reason we can't just do it in an
architecture-independent way is that we'd want to avoid doing the
address generation twice (for architectures where that is an issue).
