Ha! So I think this ends up being very similar to what I had *before* I
rebased onto KCSAN:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/will/linux.git/tree/include/linux/compiler.h?h=rwonce/cleanup#n202

in which case you can drop __WRITE_ONCE_SCALAR; the _SCALAR things shouldn't
be used outside of the implementation anyway.
