It wraps and looks hideous in my normal setup. And I do detest that indent
after # thing.

This would disallow an architecture to override just fetch_dec_release for
instance.

I don't think there currently is any architecture that does that, but the
intent was to allow it to override anything and only provide defaults where it
does not.

None of this takes away the giant trainwreck that is the annotated atomic stuff
though.

And I seriously hate this one:

ba1c9f83f633 ("locking/atomic/x86: Un-macro-ify atomic ops implementation")

and will likely undo that the moment I need to change anything there.

So no, don't like.
