The VAX now has a fast non-MP emulation of atomic_cas so that should be

I looked at this code, as well as your musings about the design. Did you
miss one step in there, or did I miss something?
I thought that we needed to reset the address pointing location on all
traps/exceptions, but we don't seem to be. So unless an interrupt
actually calls the CAS function, the CAS will happily run to completion
no matter how many intervening interrupt, exceptions and context
I'm trying to see if this can be a problem, but I'm not sure. But based
on your comments in your design, I seem to read that the idea was that
the address pointer should be reset on every exception.
