    Use gcc builtin rather than asm for memory barriers
    This should make things more portable.
    On my machine, __sync_synchronize() uses mfence rather than lock; addl;
    Looking at the kernel memory barriers, this should be fine:
    The kernel favours using mfence, but falls back to lock; addl; when it's
    not available (32 bit non-SSE machines).
