Added a FIFO test to the atomic test suite.
This is really useful because we might be able to use something like this
for the SDL event queue.

 * Atomic operations.
slouken@5003
    27
 * 
slouken@5003
    28
 * IMPORTANT:
slouken@5003
    29
 * If you are not an expert in concurrent lockless programming, you should
slouken@5003
    30
 * only be using the atomic lock and reference counting functions in this
slouken@5003
    31
 * file.  In all other cases you should be protecting your data structures
slouken@5003
    32
 * with full mutexes.
slouken@5003
    33
 * 
slouken@5003
    34
 * The list of "safe" functions to use are:
slouken@5003
    35
 *  SDL_AtomicLock()
slouken@5003
    36
 *  SDL_AtomicUnlock()
slouken@5003
    37
 *  SDL_AtomicIncRef()
slouken@5003
    38
 *  SDL_AtomicDecRef()
slouken@5003
    39
 * 
slouken@5003
    40
 * Seriously, here be dragons!
slouken@5095
    41
 * ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
slouken@5003
    42
 *
slouken@5095
    43
 * You can find out a little more about lockless programming and the 
slouken@5095
    44
 * subtle issues that can arise here:
slouken@5095
    45
 * http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee418650%28v=vs.85%29.aspx
slouken@5095
    46
 *
slouken@5098
    47
 * There's also lots of good information here:
slouken@5098
    48
 * http://www.1024cores.net/home/lock-free-algorithms
slouken@5098
    49
 *
slouken@5095
    50
 * These operations may or may not actually be implemented using
slouken@5003
    51
 * processor specific atomic operations. When possible they are
slouken@5003
    52
 * implemented as true processor specific atomic operations. When that
slouken@5003
    53
 * is not possible the are implemented using locks that *do* use the
slouken@5003
    54
 * available atomic operations.
slouken@5003
    55
 *
slouken@5003
    56
 * All of the atomic operations that modify memory are full memory barriers.
