mrg asked me to leave this open because it could use optimization.

We could either make the custom mutex scheme work properly, or optimize
atomic_cas_ulong() so that it does not need to disable interrupts. Both of  
these would mean changing the interrupt handling code to complete and/or
restart a CAS operation if it's interrupted. I think it would be better to
optimize atomic_cas_ulong() since it would mean we're focusing one one
routine instead of many.
