New PrimOps for atomic memory operations.
The <literal>casMutVar#</literal> PrimOp was introduced in
GHC 7.2 (debugged in 7.4). This release also includes additional
PrimOps for compare-and-swap (<literal>casArray#</literal> and
<literal>casIntArray#</literal>) and one for fetch-and-add
(<literal>fetchAddIntArray#</literal>).
