* Lock-less NULL terminated single linked list
* The basic atomic operation of this list is cmpxchg on long. On
* architectures that don't have NMI-safe cmpxchg implementation, the
* list can NOT be used in NMI handlers. So code that uses the list in
* an NMI handler should depend on CONFIG_ARCH_HAVE_NMI_SAFE_CMPXCHG.
