>From this link, it looks like the definitions of:
__atomic64_or
__atomic64_and
__atomic64_xor
and their *_barrier variants are problematic.  I think converting
those to use unsigned long is the way to go.  Shouldn't you be doing
bitwise ops on unsigned types anyways?

The warnings with __atomic64_add are tougher to read/understand since
at that point the log lines look like they start to mix together.

That's no terrible, IMO, particularly with the change I suggest above.
