Sounds reasonable to me too - that should also be true for the majority
of Arm systems that we know of. Will suggested that atomic_try_cmpxchg()
might be relevant, but AFAICS that's backwards compared to what we want
to do here, which I guess is more of an "atomic_unlikely_cmpxchg".

Acked-by: Robin Murphy <robin.murphy@arm.com>

Cheers,
Robin.
