This series provides a cleanup of the current atomics implementation
of RISC-V:

* PR100265: Use proper fences for atomic load/store
* PR100266: Provide programmatic implementation of CAS

As both are very related, I merged the patches into one series.

The first patch could be squashed into the following patches,
but I found it easier to understand the chances with it in place.

The series has been tested as follows:
* Building and testing a multilib RV32/64 toolchain
  (bootstrapped with riscv-gnu-toolchain repo)
* Manual review of generated sequences for GCC's atomic builtins API

The programmatic re-implementation of CAS benefits from a REE improvement
(see PR100264):
If this patch is not in place, then an additional extension instruction
is emitted after the SC.W (in case of RV64 and CAS for uint32_t).

Further, the new CAS code requires cbranch INSN helpers to be present:

Changes for v2:
* Guard LL/SC sequence by compiler barriers ("blockage")
  (suggested by Andrew Waterman)
* Changed commit message for AMOSWAP->STORE change
  (suggested by Andrew Waterman)
* Extracted cbranch4 patch from patchset (suggested by Kito Cheng)
* Introduce predicate riscv_sync_memory_operand (suggested by Jim Wilson)
* Fix small code style issue
