Code using atomics should link with -latomic #9055

Copy link

Building curl-7.84.0 for 64-bit RISC-V Linux using GCC 12.1.0 fails for me:

  CCLD     curl
ld: ../lib/.libs/ undefined reference to `__atomic_exchange_1'

This is because GCC 12 doesn't inline sub-word-sized atomic operations (although future versions may do), and the new code in easy_lock.h does an atomic exchange on a single-byte atomic_bool.

The proper fix would be to link with GCC's libatomic - maybe CURL_ATOMIC should check for this? Changing the type of curl_simple_lock to atomic_int also works as a workaround.

To work with more compilers without requiring separate libs to
link. Like with gcc-12 for RISC-V on Linux.
