Hi Ivan,

I finally fixed the double_[load|store|compare_and_swap] AArch64
support. I defined double_ptr_storage as an unsigned __int128 and used
the load and store exclusive pair registers instruction of the A64
isa. The testsuite is now fine (notice that the failures with stack
and malloc was due to the previous compare_and_swap implementation). I
kept the generic implementation garded by an ifndef, but maybe they
could be put in something like a double_generic.h.
