This is why I didn't use "qatomic". "atomic" feels too common to prefix
with just a single letter.

But I grepped /usr/include and code searched GitHub. I can't find any
uses of "qatomic_" so it looks safe. FWIW Qt does have qatomic.h but
doesn't use the name for identifiers in the code.

Let's do it!
