Yes, that as well.  I don't know if the legacy atomic_increment function
implies a barrier.  I think we need the equivalent of __atomic_fetch_add
(or __atomic_add_fetch) with __ATOMIC_ACQ_REL, and our <atomic.h> does
not have this, and we are not supposed to use the compiler built-ins.

atomic_fetch_add_relaxed together with atomic_full_barrier should work,
