RFR (S) 8019968: Reference CAS induces GC store barrier even on failure

I would like to suggest a fix for:

In short, current reference CAS intrinsic blindly emits post_barrier,
ignoring the CAS result. In some cases, notably contended CAS
spin-loops, we fail the CAS a lot, and thus go for a post_barrier
excessively. Instead, we can conditionalize on the result of the store
itself, and put the post_barrier only on success path:

More performance results here:


P.S. Thanks to Vladimir Ivanov, who manhandled me through dealing with
GraphKit/IdealKit interop.
