Will this be implemened for all 32-bit architectures which are currently
missing cmpxchg64()?

If so, any particular reason not to do it in generic code?

If not then I think that driver should be fixed to either depend on some
appropriate Kconfig symbol or to not use this API since it clearly isn't
portable at the moment.

See also Shannon's comment about that specific driver:
