    gatomic: Fix false positive with Clang+TSAN · a3d90c07

    __atomic_load_8 and friends do not exist under clang. Use the generic
    __atomic_load variant instead that are documented here:
    These have the additional benefit that the exact size of gint (4 bytes)
    or gpointer (4 or 8 bytes) no longer have to be checked.
    I initially tried `__typeof__(*(atomic)) val;`, but that caused warnings
    in Clang (-Wincompatible-pointer-types-discards-qualifiers) when
    "atomic" points to a volatile variable. Aside from that, it is
    apparently not supported everywhere, see the g_has_typeof macro.
    Another reason not to use it are new warnings under Clang, including:
        glib/deprecated/gthread-deprecated.c:683:11: warning: incompatible pointer types initializing 'typeof (*(&mutex->mutex.mutex))' (aka 'union _GMutex *') with an expression of type 'GRecMutex *' (aka 'struct _GRecMutex *') [-Wincompatible-pointer-types]
                  g_atomic_pointer_set (&mutex->mutex.mutex, result);
    Hence, cast the atomic variable to gint/gpointer pointers, the size was
    already statically asserted so the cast should be safe.
    The macros use a (hopefully) rare "gaps_temp" name instead of something
    like "val" to avoid an issue with GCC builds:
        glib/tests/once.c:123:test_once4: assertion failed (val == "foo"): (NULL == "foo")
    Closes #1843
