We blacklisted this primitive some time ago, cf. section "LIMITATIONS",
entry (6b) in tools/memory-model/README; the discussion was here:

https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20180829211053.20531-3-paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com

but unfortunately I can't remember other details at the moment: maybe
it is just a matter of or the proper time to update that section.

Thanks,
Andrea
