This code built with -O3 and -m32 on godbolt shows split problem.

#include <stdint.h>

typedef uint64_t rte_counter64_t;

rte_counter64_add(rte_counter64_t *counter, uint32_t val)
        *counter += val;
…       *counter = val;

        push    ebx
        mov     eax, DWORD PTR [esp+8]
        xor     ebx, ebx
        mov     ecx, DWORD PTR [esp+12]
        add     DWORD PTR [eax], ecx
        adc     DWORD PTR [eax+4], ebx
        pop     ebx

        mov     eax, DWORD PTR [esp+4]
        mov     edx, DWORD PTR [eax+4]
        mov     eax, DWORD PTR [eax]
        movq    xmm0, QWORD PTR [esp+8]
        mov     eax, DWORD PTR [esp+4]
        movq    QWORD PTR [eax], xmm0
