x86: Provide an alternative() based cmpxchg64()

cmpxchg64() today generates, to quote Linus, "barf bag" code.

cmpxchg64() is about to get used in the scheduler to fix a bug there,
but it's a prerequisite that cmpxchg64() first be made non-sucking.

This patch turns cmpxchg64() into an efficient implementation that
uses the alternative() mechanism to just use the raw instruction on
all modern systems.

Note: the fallback is NOT smp safe, just like the current fallback
is not SMP safe. (Interested parties with i486 based SMP systems
are welcome to submit fix patches for that.)
