ok. Easy to remove.

Based on my look it looks like that I can replace implementations in
this file by sourcing which will be using atomic operations.

#include <asm-generic/bitops/atomic.h>
#include <asm-generic/bitops/lock.h>

Correct?

Would be good to run any testsuite to prove that all operations works as
expected. Is there any testsuite I can use to confirm it?

Thanks,
Michal
