This doesn't perform an atomic operation, because lock_user and unlock_user copy data from and to the guest. The atomic operation you're doing is on memory private to the host.

You also have to handle host byte order != target byte order.

That said, we are some way toward addressing this. The patch set that Emilio pointed you at is a good start.
